Many Voices …

… expressing many thoughts on the singular issue.
As a 60-year-old privileged white male that grew up in the DC area and went to school at Gonzaga I have my own experience.
To be brief, it was sheltered from challenge.
This series you were here many voices where some might be fingers on the chalkboard others you will understand perfectly.
I believe you can come away from this series with the understanding of why we must as a society be proactive and demanding in making it truly inclusive.
Cliff Brown does an excellent job in identifying a range of guests then giving them breadth of room while keeping it focused. Good job on editing too.
