On the Road: Heather Glady of Washington DC, #DismantlingWhiteousness

Heather Glady, born and raised near Phoenix, Arizona, has an internship at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.  The story of race in this country is also a story about who controls the historical narrative, and Heather has much to say on what that means.  Hear her focus on the story of Geneva K. Valentine, and why she believes we need to move the narrative of diversity in this country into broader arenas than just oppression and injustice.

Please note that Heather speaks from her personal opinions which do not necessarily reflect those of The George Washington University or the Smithsonian.
