Protesters gathered on Kansas City's Country Club Plaza in the days following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Furthering your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression and equity takes time and determination. But there's an abundance of resources to help empower those on the quest for equity and justice.

If the ongoing protests around the country have you wondering what you can do to help, committing yourself to learning more about the forces at work is a beginning. One longtime racial justice educator has a way to get you started.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
