[Video] Webster Speaks on The Journey to Becoming an Antiracist

November 17, 2020

White allyship is vital to fighting racism against Black people. It is not a matter of embracing those who look different; being an antiracist involves hard, daily, deliberate work. Four white social justice activists from the St. Louis area addressed this issue in the tenth edition of Webster Speaks: Dialogues on RACE, EQUITY and INCLUSION on Nov. 11. This marks the first time the Zoom Livestream show, which debuted July 8, featured white panelists.
