Alicia Garza: On Historical Amnesia and Fighting White Supremacy

As people respond in the wake of actions in Charlottesville, Virginia, perpetrated by white supremacists and Nazi’s emboldened by President Trump, we interview Alicia Garza, one of the founding leaders of Black Lives Matter. You’ll hear Garza’s specific definitions of power and white supremacy, as she contextualizes this moment, and you’ll learn about concrete actions that people, especially white people can take to move forward and organize.
