Season 8 Episode 4: Systematic Racism - Sage B. Hobbs

Season 8 Episode 4: Systematic Racism


“You cannot heal what you have not diagnosed. You cannot repair what you do not see.” – Isabel Wilkerson

Today we’re bringing it back to basics. What do we mean when we refer to “systematic racism”, and how is this different than racism on the individual level? Join us today as we unpack the realities of ‘racism by design’, and what are we really going to do about it in this lifetime.

In this show we're talking about:

  • Defining systematic, structural and institutionalised racism
  • The public systems in which structural racism is evident 
  • Broadway shows that are challenging cultural norms 
  • Resistance to ‘believing in’ systematic racism
  • Important questions we need to keep asking ourselves

Here are the beautiful resources we mention:
