In this week's interview, ChrisTiana ObeySumner talks with Ibram X. Kendi about the critical need to recognize and define the structures that feed into racism. They delve into the intersections of racism and ableism, and discuss strategies for moving past reactionary stances to create language that's relevant and enduring. They identify the need to recognize sources of racism in policies—what factors are supporting them, who is pushing them, what do they stand to gain, and how do we replace them? Get an insider's look and stay in the know about what's going on in this moment at Town Hall.
