Ep.7-Mitchell S. Jackson On Race, Othering and Empathy
By Sheila Hamilton
Mitchell S. Jackson grew up in Portland, Oregon, one of the whitest cities in America. He dealt drugs, he spent time in prison, and then he went on to become a critically acclaimed author and teacher. His book, Survival Math is one of the most anticipated works on racism and the conditions that shape young black men. In this episode of Beyond Well, Sheila, Brian and Jenna talk with Mitchell about why empathy may be the first step toward repairing America's fractures.
