EP 73: A powerful conversation about race, racism and white privilege with Nova Reid

Jul 04, 2019, 03:59 PM

Join Selina Barker and Nova Reid as they dive deep into conversation about race, white privilege and dismantling racism.

Selina here and I am SOOOO excited for you to listen to the podcast episode we have for you today.

I truly believe is one of the most important podcast episodes I have ever recorded. 

I was joined by the amazing Nova Reid to dive deep into conversation about race, white privilege and what I can do as a white woman to play a proactive role in dismantling racism. 

Nova Reid is a Diversity campaigner, anti-racism educator and founder of Nu Bride and is passionate about helping people push through fear, lead by example and be the change they want to see in the world. And I am completely in love and in awe of her. Through her work she is hit by online racist attacks on a daily basis and yet she continues to meet the world with love, courage and an unwavering belief that we CAN be the change. 

I’ve been doing Nova’s ‘White Privilege’ anti-racism course since December and I have found it to be SUCH a powerful course. I once felt totally powerless when it came to racism and inequality. I had no idea what, as a white person, I could do or was supposed to do. 

Now with this course I know exactly what I can do. Nova has given me the tools and guidance to help me do real work. And wow, is the work deep and powerful. 

I am now full of hope and excitement at what can happen if more and more white people stand up and do this work too. Which is what this episode is really all about. 

I can’t wait for you to hear it!

And if you are white, my invitation to you is to come and do Nova’s ‘White Privilege’ course. Let’s do this work together!
