The Brit is a podcast that Morgan DeRose, a junior from Whitehall,, and Caitlyn-Rae Arendse, a junior from Columbus, Ohio, spent this past summer working to create. Episodes of The Brit will air every Monday.
Episode 1, Black Lives Matter
In this episode, hosts of The Brit, Arendse and Derose, sit down with Lexi Taylor, a junior from Toledo, Ohio, Clare Kelley, a senior from Plymouth, Mich., and Khaiylah Johnson-Bustamante, a junior from New York, New York, to talk about their incredible summers and how they dedicated themselves to learning and advocating for the Black Lives Matter movement. We discuss opportunities and events they attended, what they saw and how they felt as they participated in historical efforts to support Black Lives all over the world.
Goals of The Episode
This episode aims to educate listeners on why conversations on race matter as well as discuss the ways in which we can do more as a society in order to understand what is currently happening in the world with regard to race and discrimination. Using Taylor, Kelley and Johnson-Bustamante’s activism as a launching-pad, we also seek to share ways to get involved with the cause.
