Now, you might be wondering. Do we really have to start talking about the past again? Can’t we just move on?
Well, that is not the best advice to give, especially to the victims of an unjust system, epitomized with different names and brands – systemic racism, discrimination, and the oppressive legal and political structure.
This, after all, is happening in a supposedly free society, which sells its image of equality for all. That in itself is the confusion that needs better clarification.
The Key Questions In This Episode:
- How much do we really understand the system?
- Why are racism and discrimination so deep in America?
- As an African diaspora, do you know what is stacked up against you?
- And why do you need to learn about your history as a people?
To educate us on these and other questions, we are going to be relying on a Visiting Associate Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Kenja Mccray Ph.D.
