Structural Racism, Privilege And Reopening: COVID Impacts On Navajo Nation

May 27, 2020

Let's Talk New Mexico 5/28, 8a: Many of the people protesting COVID-related restrictions around New Mexico are white, while the virus has disproportionately impacted Native communities. This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we look at how whiteness plays into anti-shutdown responses in towns that border tribal communities.

We’ll hear from folks on the Navajo Nation about how a long history of structural violence puts them at risk of infection, and we’ll hear from white people involved in anti-racism work about what they’re doing to respond. To join the conversation, email or call in live during the show at 277-5866.




Seeing White" that takes a deep dive into the history of whiteness in America and its violent legacy through to today.
