Charlottesville Quarantine Report

Episode 37 - Racism as a Public Health Crisis

Episode Summary

Over the past two and a half months, this podcast has been an attempt to capture the response to the COVID-19 Pandemic in Virginia, and in the Charlottesville area. Most of the show to date has brought you soundbites from Governor Ralph Northam at his regular press briefings. This one is no exception, but except for news about Phase 2, the subject matter is entirely related to racial inequities in Virginia and what the administration plans to do. Speakers include Delegate Delores McQuinn (D-70), Shirley Ginwright, Albemarle High School rising senior Niquel Perry, Pastor Kelvin Jones,Jim Bibbs, Chief Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Hudson, and Dr. Janice Underwood. Underwood is the Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer for the state of Virginia. There's also a small snippet from Monday's webcast from Dr. Cameron Webb and Dr. Taison Bell.
