The Black & White Experience (Pt. 2: Facing Racism)



After sharing our experiences with you all, it's a good thing to educationally explain some of the concepts and situations that we faced. In this episode, Brandon & Amy Beth lead a discussion on different types of culturally sensitive issues including that of white privilege, redlining, and systemic racism. This topic can be uncomfortable for some people, so we advise bringing your listening & learning ears to the conversation. While this will be our last podcast (for now) on this topic, we highly encourage self-exploration into this topic. A list of resources you can learn from is listed below the Time Stamps.
