With Anthony & Georgia
A weekly podcast exploring the events unfolding in this season of racial upheaval and change.
On this second to last episode of Bearing Witness, Anthony and Georgia Discuss developments in the Potter Trial and check-in with Humanities Center CEO Kevin Lindsey on being one of the financial backers and supporters of the Racial Reckoning Project, and how we move ahead in this time of reckoning.
With the upcoming closing of the Racial Reckoning Project, Georgia and reporter Feven Gerezgiher reflect on their time together and how this project has brought them some hope during a difficult time.
Anthony and Georgia catch up on this week’s news and check-in with Racial Reckoning founder Freddie Bell about the origin of the project and where he sees it going in the future.
After a tumultuous week, we’re joined by one of the only Black male doulas in the state, William Moore. With a high percentage of Black women still dying from difficulties during birth, the importance of community advocates is more crucial now than ever.
Bearing Witness with Anthony Galloway and Georgia Fort is a production of Racial Reckoning: The Arc of Justice, a journalism project created and supported by Ampers, Diverse Radio for Minnesota’s Communities, in partnership with KMOJ Radio and The Minnesota Humanities Center.
Racial Reckoning: The Arc of Justice is a journalism initiative from Ampers, Diverse Radio for Minnesota’s Communities, KMOJ Radio, and the Minnesota Humanities Center covering the trials of the officers accused of killing George Floyd, the community’s reaction, and exploring the changes needed to create a more just society.
The long-term goal of Racial Reckoning: The Arc of Justice is to work toward changing problematic racial narratives in local news media, engage communities, amplify community solutions to narrative change, and empower educators to discuss race in the classroom.
Bearing Witness is made possible by the Minnesota Art’s and Cultural Heritage fund.
