Black Women In Idaho And Colorado Reflect On Long Overdue Calls For Racial Justice

Madelyn Beck
Boise State Public Radio


As the movement for racial justice presses on in Idaho and across the country, we’re hearing from people of color in the Mountain West who feel like this moment is long overdue. 

Leta Harris Neustaeder from Boise says it's great to see white people come out as allies in the fight for inclusion and justice, but allyship is more than just a social media post or participation in a protest. And four Black women scholars and activists in Colorado (Rosemarie Allen, Janiece Mackey, Michaela Lee and Carolyn Love) share their cross-generational experiences with and systemic racism. 


These stories were produced by Amanda Peacher and Rae Ellen Bichell of the Mountain West News Bureau.
