Thanks for a great Coffee Talk today on “Addressing Racism and Prejudices.”
About 50 people attended the discussion, making it our largest one yet.
We are grateful to guest panelist Rachel Dolezal, a professor in the Africana Education Program at Eastern Washington University, who was able to step in for Makayla Desjarlais.
Other panelists included:
- SpokaneFAVS writer Matthew Rindge who wrote “Black is the New Black: White Privilege and White Fragility“
- SpokaneFAVS writer Neal Schindler who wrote “Checking his privilege: A response to Tal Fortgang“
- Guest panelist Regina Malveaux, executive director of the YWCA of Spokane
Due to time restrictions not all questions were able to be answered, but we hope the conversation can continue in the comment section below.
