Each week, the White Privilege Conference and the Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion, housed at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS), hosts a half hour radio show called Intersections Radio that features an interview with a different author, scholar, and/or speaker.
In this segment, Gary R. Howard, who has 35 years of experience working with issues of civil rights, social justice, equity, education, and diversity, including 30 years as the Founder of the REACH Center for Multicultural Education, discusses those issues on Intersections Radio. He is a keynote speaker, writer, and workshop leader who travels extensively throughout the United States and Australia.
His most recent book, We Can't Teach What We Don't Know, Second Edition (2006), was published by Columbia University and is considered a groundbreaking work examining issues of privilege, power, and the role of White leaders and educators in a multicultural society. His current work is centered on leading Equity Leadership Institutes, which provide organizations with the internal capacity to implement long-term systemic change strategies for achieving greater equity and social justice in their practices.
Intersections Radio is hosted by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., founder of the White Privilege Conference (WPC), which is held annually in cities across the United States; and Daryl Miller, who works with the WPC and other programs of the Matrix Center. The WPC is an award-winning national diversity conference that serves as a yearly opportunity to examine and explore difficult issues related to white privilege, white supremacy, and oppression, and works to dismantle systems of power, prejudice, and inequality. College students from around the country participate in the conference for academic credit.
