They say history is written by the victors. But uncovering the stories from those on the other side is so important. Today, we’re joined by Patricia Raybon, an award-winning author, essayist, and novelist who writes top-rated books at the daring intersection of faith and race. Together, we’re breaking down a side of Colorado in the 1920s that even many locals were never taught about; a piece of suppressed history. Join us to explore THIS unspoken side of history, the evolution of white supremacy culture in the US, and the systems in our recent history that people don’t want to talk about.
- Patricia’s experience growing up in a Black family in the 1960s in Colorado
- The ways the definition of white supremacy has changed
- Why BIPOC have historically embraced white supremacy culture
- How and why the pandemic brought an unexpected feeling of safety for many BIPOC
- The surprising prevalence of Ku Klux Klan members in Colorado in the 20s, and their impact on local government
- And more!
