Episode 3: Facing Racism Through an Open Dialogue in a Safe Space (w/ Ken James & Alan Headbloom)

Meet Alan Headbloom & Kenneth James: the dynamic duo behind “Facing Racism.”

Facing Racism is a two-day workshop where participants engage in tough but productive conversations around race and racism. Despite having the same goal of breaking the barriers of racism in West Michigan, the two have led completely different lives. Alan grew up in privilege – with an affluent family and the opportunity to have traveled all around the world. Ken, on the other hand, has lived in different cities across the United States, but has experienced discrimination of some form throughout every move. What motivated these two to join forces and face racism together? How can we all take small steps to embrace diversity in our lives? Tune in to find out… While we drink craft soda from Brix Soda Co.!
