Authors Of New Book Say People In Boulder Need To Learn How To Talk About Racism

The Black Lives Matters demonstrations that erupted nationwide in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd in the summer of 2020 did more than occupy space on the streets. They created a discourse and a reckoning that forced people in the U.S. to at least acknowledge systemic inequalities and the structures that enforce them.

Some of these conversations have been public, others have been one-on-one. Others have been in books. One of those books is the newly-released Courageous Discomfort: How to Have Important, Brave, Life-Changing Conversations about Race and Racism.

Host, Hannah Stewart spoke with co-authors, Shanterra McBride and Rosalind Wiseman. Shanterra is the founder of MARVELOUS UNIVERSITY and author of Love Your Jiggle: The Girls’ Guide to Being Marvelous and Rosalind is most known for Queen Bees and Wannabees, which was the source material for the film Mean Girls.
