S03 E09 – Covert Racism


Racism has existed for millennia, but as laws and time have passed it can now show up in covert ways.

Join J.R. Jamison as he shares the stories of three women—one Black, one Muslim, and one Native American—and what their lives are like in a mid-sized Midwestern community, and he sits down with Yvonne Thompson, Director of the Human Rights Commission, to talk about what everyday people can do to combat discrimination.
