Opportunity and sharing power is the antidote to discrimination

Description

alt-text:

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt. It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the 1950s. She called the owner and told him if he'd book me, she'd take a front table every night. I never had to play a small jazz club again."

Marilyn Monroe with Ella Fitzgerald explaining that Marilyn Monroe used her privilege to give Ella Fitzgerald an opportunity so she never had to play a small jazz club again. Ella didn’t need mentoring, nor did she need to improve her skillset, she simply needed an opportunity. This is why the key is to give people from marginalised groups more opportunities to make up for the ones they have lost.
