You, Me and Them: Experiencing Discrimination in America, African Americans

Oct 26, 2017

Broadcast date: 10/26/2017

This week we will be joining with other NPR member stations as part of a series called "You, Me and Them: Experiencing Discrimination in America." The program will be rooted in a large national poll by NPR in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. This unique survey of more than 3,400 respondents asked people about their personal experiences with discrimination across a range of areas of life. Central Coast Voices will be joining the conversation with a local perspective, both examining the state of discrimination in America and discussing issues and attitudes closer to home.

Join Fred Munroe as he kicks of the series with Courtney Haile, founding member of R.A.C.E. Matters SLO County, Renoda Campbell, San Luis Obispo portrait photographer and Staff Emeritus from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and Dr. Michael Latner, Associate Professor of Political Science at Cal Poly, and Kendall Voting Rights Fellow at the Union of Concerned Scientists as they talk about discrimination in America, and the experiences and views of African Americans.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
