This week on the RelationSHIFT Experience, host Changa Bell goes into the depths of a subject that we often only discuss (if at all) in the privacy of our homes, and amongst our trusted friends — the subject of race. Martin Friedman and Michael Scott of the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond join Changa Bell in the studio to discuss whiteness, and what it means to be white.
The People’s Institute is a national and international collective of anti-racist, multicultural community organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social transformation. The People’s Institute believes that racism is the primary barrier preventing communities from building effective coalitions and overcoming institutionalized oppression and inequities.
Founded in 1980 by long-time community organizers Ronald Chisom of New Orleans, and Dr. Jim Dunn of Yellow Springs, Ohio, The People’s Institute has impacted the lives of nearly 500,000 people both nationally and internationally.
