Racist Encounters, Small and Large

Typically Nashville Demystified is conversation and interview heavy, but again I am just off vacation and so I am without an interview. And, and this is the focus of what follows, on my way back from BNW airport my Uber driver used the n-word twice.

I discuss what unfolded, how my Northern friends shouldn’t believe this to be an isolated incident, and how it relates to state politics here in Tennessee (and also in Maine).

Throughout this episode you’ll hear audio from a 2013 panel discussion co-hosted by Vanderbilt University and Frist Art Museum called Reflections of the Civil Rights Movement in Nashville Then and Now. The specific voice you’ll hear belongs to Vanderbilt University professor of Philosophy Dr. Lucius Outlaw.
