Conversations about racial ethnic, and social equality have been going on for generations. During the summer of 2020, the entire country was engaged in dialogue about where their communities needed to see growth in the effort to be fair and welcoming to all.

Boone and Watauga County were very much involved in these conversations. Many people and  organizations used their opportunity to speak and share stories about injustices that have been experienced i our community. Some have taken the opportunity to listen and hear perspectives other than their own, while seeking paths toward one another to engage in constructive conversations about where community growth can truly occur.

This week's podcast serves as a check-in on these important conversations, what steps have been taken to advance ideas of equality forward, and where people may be able to engage should they feel inclined to do so.

We thank Dr. Ray Christian, Boone Police Chief Andy LeBeau, Pastor Reggie Hunt, Yolanda Adams, and App State student Kyndavee Bichara for joining us to engage in this important conversation.
