This week on Beyond the Spin, we visit the Facing Race Conference, a national conference held in Baltimore earlier this month. Hosted by ARC (Applied Research Center), the three day event served as a platform for racial justice leaders, educators, and artists. We’ll listen to selections from plenaries on gender and culture, and hear from various participants from across the nation including,
Michael Omi, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies in the Ethnic Studies Department at the University of California, Berkeley;
Janet Mock, writer and Staff Editor at People.com;
Maegan Ortiz, independent journalist and media maker whose work is featured on lamamitamala.com and in the book Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind: Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice Movements and Communities;
The Marc Steiner Show currently airs on The Real News Network. The show covers the topics that matter, engaging real voices, from Charm City to Cairo and beyond. Email us to share your comments with us.
