Revisiting The Black & the White of It, with Michelle Wescott

Episode 54.  Juneteenth celebrates the day that the last of the slaves in this country were freed. It is truly a day for all of us to celebrate!

In honor of the upcoming Juneteenth celebration, Normal Lies is replaying episode 16, The White and the Black of it, with Michelle Wescott. 

Michelle and Linda discuss topics from Linda's perspective as a white woman and Michelle's perspective as a black woman. 

Michelle and Linda discuss:

  • how they each relate to the term "melting pot"  as a description of our country. 
  • terms like Hispanic, Latino, Latinx, how to know what  the right term is to use and the simple practice that Michelle uncovered that we can all begin using right now! 
  • and, Linda offers important information EVERY US citizen should know about the Juneteenth holiday.
