…Alternatively Titled: “Hello Chelsea, It’s Tina and Jen, Let’s Talk About Your Privilege”
On Friday, September 13th, Chelsea Handler released a documentary on Netflix called “Hello Privilege, It’s Me, Chelsea.” Being the anti-racism educator she is, Tina Strawn decided to check it out, and within days Tina and Jen had watched the documentary two times, talked about it over the phone, and decided to do a podcast discussing it.
If you’ve watched the documentary, plan on watching the documentary, or have absolutely no interest in watching the documentary- this episode is an essential listen as Tina challenges us to greater depth and accountability in the work of dismantling white supremacy and privilege.
