Dear Listeners and Supporters:
The Another View staff is taking this Friday off to be with our families, but we have a thought provoking program for you. It's called "Opening the Question of Race to the Question of Belonging." This program features a conversation with john a. powell, an esteemed legal scholar who counsels all kinds of people and projects on the front lines of our present racial anguish and longings. This program is part of the "On Being: Civil Conversations Project" series which draws out fresh ways to disarm dead-end debates on racial and economic isolation, partisanship and abortion. It's a new kind of conversation that offers ideas and tools for healing our fractured civic spaces. Tune in to 89.5 WHRV-FM at noon on Friday, November 27 to hear this unique conversation.
On behalf of Lisa Godley, Victor Bowen and myself, we wish you all the best this Thanksgiving holiday, and we are forever thankful for your support.

The second topic in our Race: Let's Talk About It initiative addresses the controversial issue of "white privilege" - defined as "any advantage that is unearned, exclusive and socially conferred", according to our guest, Allan G. Johnson, author of "Privilege, Power and Difference". On the next Another View we'll talk about the concept of privilege, if it exists, and how it shapes our society and affects race relations. We will also hear from Carla Johnson who shares her feelings about privilege and race after research and soul searching, and Jonathan Zur, Executive Director of the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities shares his perspective on how white privilege affects our youth.

In our continuing efforts to educate our listeners about the process of politics and policy, we've started something new. It's called "The Claville Report: Policy, Law and Politics". On the next Another View, the Director of the Hampton University Pre-Law Institute, Eric Claville joins us as "co-host" for the Claville Report. He and host Barbara Hamm Lee will talk with Spencer Overton, Professor of Law and President of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies at the George Washington School of Law, about the upcoming elections in Virginia and how policy and politics impact our lives. It's an honest conversation about why all of us - and people of color in particular - need to pay attention and participate in each election cycle.
