Amoretta Morris
01:08:33
Q: What are opportunities for philanthropy to amplify the counter narrative/our narrative? Can regional associations commit to op-eds in their local papers? National orgs in national papers? Increase support for newsrooms and journalists of color who are committed to truth-telling and not the caricature and false debate?
Samantha Franklin
01:08:55
Q: We know that this country has a legacy of divide and conquer between black folks/POC and disenfranchised white folks. Are there ways to message these counternarratives we heard that are particularly effective at reaching white folks who are disenfranchised and promoting solidarity with POC?

Q. One of the most powerful lessons of Sister Heather McGhee’s book, The Sum of Us, with the “drained pool” analogy is that racism is also harmful and damaging for White People.
