Jul 31, 2018

Segment 1: Frank White's way of doing business may be greatest obstacle to winning primary.

The race to be the next Jackson County executive is garnering attention as incumbent Frank White continues to refuse invitations to public forums and interviews before the August 7 primary election. We reviewed the issues surrounding Mr. White, including building a new county jail and and the investigation of his finances by the Missouri attorney general.

Segment 2, beginning at: 24:25: American art and the culture of exclusion. 

While curatorial fields tend to be more diverse than other academic departments, the leadership of art institutions is often made up of mostly white people. Today, we discussed how systems of exclusion are keeping people of color from top positions in the art world.
