Blog Post 6: Oral History

So I actually didn’t end up having ANYONE to interview for this. I reached out to the few people I know who could have helped but nothing panned out.

I don’t know how to still receive credit for this. But here’s a link to a podcast episode with Rebecca Solnit that I really enjoyed. It is extremely relevant as it is about our country’s response to natural disasters in the past. It touches upon racism in the face of natural disasters… For example: white people spreading fear of looting and rioting and how that just perpetuates racism. It talks about racism in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It talks about how to be more unified in the wake of a crisis or disaster. It talks about moments of unity that have happened in this context throughout history… It is about so much more and it’s really good and super relevant to our current situation. Give it a listen!
