Episode #50: Can You See Me Now, Pt. 2: Facebook Live Recording w/ Marci French

Marci French, our very first guest on Episode 02, “Searching For Identity,” joined Mandi Benecke and Naomi Marquez on an interactive Facebook Live event to have a live, authentic, vulnerable conversation about JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion,) what it means, and how each of us can do our part in making a positive change for marginalized people in our society. We discuss many current event topics. This is an open, honest, and vulnerable conversation about white privilege, police brutality, racial inequality, implicit bias, anti-racism, and what white people can do to make real change.

NAACP President Derrick Johnson defined systemic racism, also called structural racism or institutional racism, as “systems and structures that have procedures or processes that disadvantage African Americans.” Glenn Harris, president of Race Forward and publisher of Colorlines, defined it as, “The complex interaction of culture, policy, and institutions that holds in place the outcomes we see in our lives.”
