Juneteenth on XRAY and The Numberz – Listen now!

To celebrate Juneteenth, XRAY partnered with The Numberz for our third annual teach-in led by leaders of color in the Portland community. We covered topics including the rise of white supremacy and nationalism, black women leading in white spaces, the resurgence of black art and investing in black Portland.

Conversations were prepared and covered by hosts Karol Kollymore, Shari Dunn, DJ Ambush, Kayela J, Jeff Selby, Kayla Jo and Brittain Jackson, and engineered by XRAY staff and volunteers.
