Is Racial Hatred More or Less Empowered One Year After Charlottesville?

WDET 101.9 FM

Heather McGhee is distinguished senior fellow with Demos, a New York based public policy think tank, and an expert on race and inequality. She joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to give her thoughts on what we’ve learned — and what we haven’t learned — in the past year.

“This has been such a stressful and hectic year in responding to racial conflict and instances of racism,” says McGhee. “I think a lot of people would like to think of the torchbearing Nazis in Charlottesville as something that’s of a different kind entirely than the other kind of racist acts that we see every day across the country. But I don’t think we have the luxury of thinking that way.”
