The one in which we explore the sexist, racist, patriarchal beginnings of the institution of marriage and how it has changed over the years; or has it?
The one in which we explore two of the most popular, and controversial, monuments in the U.S: Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and Stone Mountain in Stone Mountain Park, Georgia.
The one in which we talk about the Black Panther Party (originally the Black Panther Party for Self Defense). We wade through all of the stereotypes to try to truly understand this critical Black Power movement.
The one in which we talk After Hours about how our whiteness and our privilege makes us blind to much that goes on around us – what we are learning about it, and what we are doing about it.
Turns out that despite the old cliche, what we don’t know (or can’t see) really can hurt us (and others).
The one in which we speak with Tamara T. Waraschinski, PhD, about Radical Death Studies. Dr. Waraschinski is Director of Communications for the Collective for Radical Death Studies and helped us round out our understanding of the racism and imperialism inherent in death practice and the need for sweeping changes.
The one in which we explore DeathCare and find racism in all aspects. With so many people succumbing to the novel coronavirus, death has been on our minds. We decided to see if even death includes racism, and indeed – it profoundly does. As if you can tell what color someone was once they die and move on. As if it even matters if you could.
The one in which we talk about the Electoral College – why it was created and why it is used to elect the US President instead of the popular vote. The Electoral College was originally a compromise made by the founders between those who believed the POTUS should be elected by popular democratic vote and those who believed strongly that Congress should choose. Who do you think should choose?
The one in which we talk about some of our dark history including the symbols of racism and slavery that haunt us to this day.
The one in which we talk about what happens to migrants who risk everything for a better life and end up dying on their journey. Who cares for or about them?
The session in which we talk about the serious health disparities caused by racism. There is a long history in our country of inequality in healthcare and Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the US are still more likely to be negatively impacted by many contributing factors including provider bias, unequal access, quality of living and other factors.
