Interracial dating in Juneau…

If you’re young, single and a person of color in Juneau –chances are you’ll go out on a date this Valentine’s Day with someone of another race.

That’s the consensus of guests on this Thursday’s Juneau Afternoon, presented by the Black Awareness Association of Juneau.

Christina Michelle Patterson hosts todays show and asks the question: How well are interracial couples accepted in Juneau?

This week’s guests, Blayne Katona, Kelli Patterson and Jay J, also talk about the “nuances” of the dating scene in Juneau.

Also, as part of the show’s celebration of Black History Month, guests are asked to name an African American person, either in the past or present, they’d like to have a conversation with.
