Kyle Kellams will moderate this panel discussion that ties to KUAF's multipart podcast series on anti-racism, supported by The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. This program encourages community engagement and features panelists included in KUAF's anti-racism production which will start broadcast in October and will run through November, January, and February. 

The first community conversation will expand on the first episode of the podcast as an introduction to anti-racism and the ways white people have intersected with anti-racist movements in the past, namely the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee's actions in the South in the early 1960s. The discuss will also expand upon abolitionism and its beginnings. The first episode of the podcast is scheduled to be released the week of October 18th.
