About this Episode

Institutional racism does not just impact people who are old enough to vote and have a job. It's a lifelong reality from birth to death, and it's taught, reinforced, and perpetuated when our students are in America's classrooms. Dr. Beverly Tatum, president emerita of Spelman College and bestselling author, talked with Purpose Built Communities' Michelle Matthews in Omaha in 2017 about how people of different ages discuss race - starting as students in the classroom - and how a deeper understanding and servant approach to the discussion can help break down the barriers of segregation.
