Episode Description

Tune in when Patricia interviews Debbie Irving, a white, Boton-based racial justice educator and author of Waking Up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race. She has written the book she wishes someone had handed her years ago: a story-based Racism 101 for white people. Its narrative memoir format provides a mainstream read that gives white readers the basics needed to access complex understandings about racism. Similarly, many people of color yearn for authentic, informed dialogue about racism with white friends,family and colleagues. Debby will discuss the touch point she provides in her book for examining differences and paints a clear picture of why the first step in addressing cross-cultural issues of an y kind is understanding one's own culture.
