OWWR'S "BETWEEN THE LINES", WITH MELISA WRIGHT - EPISODE # 2!

OWWR BTL

 

OWWR, Old Westbury Web Radio presents "Between the Lines", episode number two. As you know, our podcast is about anti-racism as part of a partnership with the Masters in Liberal Studies program at SUNY Old Westbury. The goal of this podcast is to create a platform, that takes part in anti-racist action by sharing information, discussing ideas, and sharing perspectives. This podcast series will feature a variety of guests including members of SUNY Old Westbury, and activists in our community taking a stand against racism.

In this second episode, we explore how social activism has evolved over the last generation. We had the honor of having two guests on this episode. The first guest, Gabby Pardo, is an editor for a Millennial/Gen-Z-based news outlet called Shades of Long Island. Shades is an online news platform that focuses on creating content for Millennials and Gen Zs, highlighting the local issues and voices on LI. Our second guest is a videographer and aspiring filmmaker, Kris Dorval. He is the creator of the short film, The Mvmt, which captured a series of Black Lives Matter protests that was held on Long Island during the summer of 2020. We discussed the motivation and impact behind his film, as well as the significance of how modern technology enhances justice by creating more accountability for law enforcement and public servants in today’s America.
