The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together
Time & Location
About the Event
Podcast (90min listen) Heather McGhee on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert
Hosted by: Paul - excited to continue our dialogue on race in a diverse, safe forum
Description: Ms McGhee is the former president of Demos, a non-profit progressive U.S. think tank. Last year she published a fascinating and well-researched book, The Sum of Us, detailing the impact racism has on everyone, not just people of color. Her work challenges us to think more broadly about how racism isn’t just morally insidious but also the economic effect of zero sum thinking and systemic policies. I found her work to be an important contribution to changing the narrative around who suffers from ongoing and cumulative inequity -- all of us!
Intent of Session: Discuss some of the topics Heather and Dax cover on the podcast.
