Racism Happens Here
Ugly incidents in any small town can produce an instant reaction: "that can't happen here."
But it did: an African-American employee of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival was the target of ugly racial talk in a brief encounter this summer.
Christiana Clark posted a video shortly after the event; she joins us for a discussion of what she experienced then and on other occasions. It's part of our continuing effort to explore racial attitudes, from the perspective of people who are often victims of racism. Southern Oregon U. professor Alma Rosa Alvarez is also a guest; SOU's Marjorie Trueblood-Gamble is the guest host.
