Ellie 2.0 Radio – April 29, 2019

We start talking about systemic racism and historical trauma in the context of constructing I-94 between Minneapolis and St. Paul and how it destroyed much of the Rondo neighborhood, which was predominately populated by black-color persons. The Big Interview is with two idealistic students (Angelo Bush and Jasmine McBride) and their idealistic instructor (Scott Herold) from the High School for the Recording Arts, who were involved in researching, creating and producing a documentary, Rondo: Beyond the Pavement about the I-94 construction. In my C-Block, I talk about how a white-color 21-year-old in Owatonna made the decision to leave his factory job in part because of how white-color humans in the workplace spoke about/treated their team workers who were of colors other than white.
