November 12, 2018 Sharonne Blanck of the Eureka, CA NAACP Continues Her Conversation with Host Kathleen Marshall

In the second of this 2 part series Sharonne Blanck, Interim President of the Eureka, California unit of the NAACP (the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) talks about bias in people in power, from store clerks, to police to Humboldt State University administration in Humboldt County.

If you live in Humboldt County Sharonne invites you to join the Euereka NAACP.  In addition to its Legal Redress Committee there is also a group examining white fragility, and social activities for expanding your cultural competency and expand the boundries of your community.

Communication, she says, is key to examining and addressing overt and hidden bias in our lives and institutions.  Communication from HSU President Lisa Rossbacher regarding the NAACPs request for HSU improvements in programs serving students of color has not happened.   That lack of communication is an abdication of administrative responsibility to students of color who lack a sense of safety and security on, and off, campus.
