Many of us these days find ourselves looking around and asking ourselves how we got here: to this moment we’re in, today. How has our history, our choices, our culture shaped the moment that we’re in when it comes to disparities in our health, wealth, our neighborhoods and education. And when it comes to racial justice.

One easy thing we can do is to look back and listen to people who have lived these experiences over the decades.

For Columbia’s bicentennial celebrations that take place in 2021 celebrating 200 years of our town, the city of Columbia’s Como200 task force commissioned KBIA to tell the stories of Columbia’s African-American history - and with the help of Columbia’s Sharp End Heritage Committee, we produced conversations about those histories through the conversation series “You Don’t Say.”

Today on The Check-In - we’re going behind the conversations, to tlak about what does get said and what we can learn - from KBIA’s project “You Don’t Say.”

 

Our Guests:

 

James Whitt, Sharp End Heritage Committee

 

Barbara Horrell, Sharp End Heritage Committee

 

Rev. Clyde Ruffin, Second Missionary Baptist Church

 

Dr. Hariharan Regunath, University of Missouri Health Care Physician
