Join us as we embark on a discussion with 3 International activists to discuss #BlackLivesMatter #Politics #WhiteSupremacy #CultPsychology 

Days after the gut wrenching death of George Floyd, Host Cara Cruickshank gathered together nine of the most woke and informed activists she knows across the US to try to figure out what’s at the core of the opposition to black lives matter and what are we going to do about it?

In this episode we meet three out of nine panelists who are doing important activism for People of color in cities across the US:
