From Liberia To Montana, Wilmot Collins On How To Talk About Racism

Nov 10, 2015

The reality and history of racial prejudice in America is hard to discuss, and so we as a people and nation have largely avoided it. But over the past year, a series of police shootings of unarmed black men has changed that. People started talking, although sometimes at each other rather than with each other. The history of enslavement of blacks followed by a hundred years of the use of law to enforce second class citizenship adds to the difficulty of comfortable serious discussion. Wilmot Collins of Helena, Montana knows more about this than most people. Collins joins us this week on “Home Ground Radio”.
