Media, Racism, and Censorship with Christine Genier
People have been asking what systemic racism looks like within UUism, how we become aware of it, and how we begin to make substantive changes. In June of 2020, Christine made national headlines when she quit her job as host of CBC Yukon Morning, live and on the air, because of systemic racism. She has much to share with us about how systemic racism works in the media, and how controlling the pace of someone else’s truth is harmful for everyone. We are certain her insights will help to broaden our understanding of the mechanisms of racism that are invisible to us, yet very much alive in our movement, institutions, and society at large.
