One of the principles guiding Burning Man is "Radical
Inclusion." Basically, all are welcome. But, the temporary city
that Burners build in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert has never been
racially diverse. Just 1% of Black Rock City self-identifies as
Black. In this episode of THE
INTERSECTION at Burning Man, we explore why there's been a
disconnect between racial and radical inclusion, and what some
Burners, like Oakland Activist and Artist Favianna Rodriguez, are
doing to change that.
This episode was edited by Lisa Morehouse. And engineered
for your listening pleasure by Gabe Grabin with music from Erik
Pearson and Blue Dot Sessions.
