Who I am

My name is Breeshia Wade

I am the author of the 2021 publication, Grieving While Black: An Antiracist Take on Oppression and Sorrow, which was rated one of the best 9 books on grief, and is currently required reading in multiple university graduate courses.


My background and training as a Zen Buddhist chaplain employed by hospices and hospitals inform my approach to using grief as a tool to dismantle systemic oppression.​


Anti-racist work is grief work.

What I do

 I help professionals and organizations transform the grief that comes with losing social privileges for the sake of equity into the power to create effective anti-racist and DE&I practices.

What I believe

I believe in Elemental Grief™, a model of grief that includes fear of (future) loss.


When advocating for DE&I, the unexplored fear of loss faced by those who are losing the benefits of privilege must be addressed to alleviate the grief of those who experience systemic oppression.

Anti-racist work is grief work.
