In order to recapture. resurrect, and rescue the minds of African people in America all corners of our community must speak out. This week’s discussion is the voice from the battlefield. The “After Seven Radio Group” interviews a young man whose blood brother’s life was “snuffed out” by a police officer. He turned his anger into action and now has created an organization to support family victims of murdered Black people.
The discussion is navigated by a group of millennial women who gives the listener a “birds-eye view” of the battlefield. Let me say the view is bloody.
IS THIS NECESSARY?
YES, because of Structural Racism: It ALL must FALL!!!
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss this unfolding phenomenon in America. Our panel of community activists and thinkers will explore the methodology relating to the deconstruction of structural racism.
Structural Racism is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with “whiteness” and disadvantages associated with “color” to endure and adapt over time. Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead, it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.
Program Host Dr. William Rogers
Black Men keep getting killed by the police while we keep killing each other. We are invisible to them because we are invisible to ourselves and each other. People talking about they didn’t know racism still exist. Are you blind? Look around your board rooms and see who is in leadership.
The Black Reality Think Tank Weekend Edition with co-host Lawanda Chambers and Leola Williams leads a discussion with a diverse community healing panel on this topic.
Host is Dr. William Rogers.
