Episode 9: Educating Ourselves about Race in Charlotte
Hi, Queens. This episode, we are discussing the recent events that have occurred in Minnesota and the events that have occurred across the country, including in Charlotte, for years. As a white person and a white-passing person, we will never understand what it is like to be Black in America. However, we're committed to owning our part in the problem, and to owning our part in the problem as it relates to Charlotte. And we're committed to changing this podcast moving forward to highlight more diverse female voices and perspectives from communities outside of our bubble. As new residents of Charlotte who want to be change makers, it's important we stay informed on not only the latest news, but what has happened in this city before we got here. It's embarrassing that it took us so long to do so, but we're here and we want to be part of this community and this conversation. This is just the first step.
