Ellie 2.0 Radio – June 29, 2020

Our featured idealists are the Black Lives Matter movement and one of its founders, Patrisse Cullors. The Big Interview is with Mick (Monique) Dargis, who identifies as nonbinary and who has written a letter to the president of the University of St. Thomas (a conservative Catholic university) asking for it to increase recognition of transgender/nonbinary humans and LGBTQ people of color. In the C-Block, I talk about the “Great Awakening” of white-color Americans finally wanting to talk about structural racism; still, I fear that without dramatic action, we will lose momentum and fall backwards into old patterns of inaction.
