This ninth episode from Season 2 features Blaire Frett, Ilana Marder-Eppstein, Lydia Collins and Louise Bond of the group Talking Whiteness on Central Street.

Talking Whiteness challenges the status quo on their home turf in Northwest Evanston with conversations that could be had around the dinner table. These organizers created a model that puts them face to face with their neighbors, asking pointed questions to encourage people to look at their privilege while talking about whiteness. As we say, there is no equity without action and these four people are out there making a difference. 

Tamika Mallory says, “we don’t need allies, we need accomplices,” And these folks are just that; we are also happy to call them Evanstonians.
