Scope and Contents

Apple Podcasts description: "In this episode, Megan and Destini speak about a very intense and disheartening email sent by a departing professor highlighting her experiences of racism. Professor Marissel Hernández-Romero sent out a very powerful email to which she expressed her experience as a professor of color at Middlebury College. It was no surprise that her experience highlighted the emotional, physical, and mental damage of systemic racism that is so prevalent in today’s society. In these times, you would expect Middlebury College to hold themselves accountable for this professor's traumatic experience, but guess what? They deleted and removed her email from every single person’s inbox to silence yet another black woman. So, Middlebury, it’s freedom of speech when it comes to inviting Charles Murray to campus to highlight white supremacy, but when it comes to a professor documenting her experiences of racism at your institution its an issue?? Do better, Middlebury. Our stories will be heard."
