How did we get here? America's racial history with Dr. Charles McKinney - Ep2

How did we get here? Civil Rights Historian Dr. Charles McKinney joins us to discuss the history of the civil rights struggle in America, being a black parent in 2020 and advice for transracial adoptive parents with their children of color. A word to our majority culture (white) listeners: as many have noted over the past few weeks, there is a deep need for listening and learning about the plight of our black and brown brothers and sisters. This conversation with Dr. McKinney is not the end all be all – rather it is a starting point for many of us as we journey together to bring healing and peace to our families, our communities and the systems that govern them.
