Thursday, February 17, 2022: Telling the story of racism in America
Natasha Boozer’s family is well known in Juneau. Her younger brother, Carlos, grew up to play professional basketball and win an Olympic Gold medal in 2008.
Today, Natasha is carving out her own success as a writer in Las Vegas, where she homeschools her children. The lessons, she says, include important conversations about racism and what it means to be Black in America.
In this week’s program from the Black Awareness Association of Juneau, she talks with Christina Michelle about the current debate over Critical Race Theory.
Culture Rich Conversations airs on Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. on KTOO Juneau 104.3. You can hear the rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m. and also listen online at ktoo.org.
Guests: Natasha Boozer, author of The Palmer Women. Natasha Boozer says Black parents need to talk with their children about the history of racism in America and how to protect themselves against it — a subject too important to trust to the schools alone, which rarely do a good job of telling the whole story. In this conversation with Christina Michelle, Boozer explains why Critical Race Theory, if widely understood, could help to heal racism in our country.
