#419: Special Episode: Race + Running

Sarah and Dimity have a candid conversation with two African-American mother runners, Brandi Dockett and Jennnifer Baskerville-Burrows, about being a black runner in America today. In this special ad-free episode, the guests talk about:

  • -when they first realized how white the sport of running is;
  • -the necessity of picking “safe” routes and times of day to run;
  • -the support and camaraderie the group Black Girls Run! provides them;
  • -how a “raggedy” conversation is better than no conversation at all.

  1. Thank you for this episode. It was hopeful and uniting. Please keep talking about race and using your voices to forward the equal justice movement.

  2. So many feelings. How to take the sadness and shame and do something constructive. Thank you for having these two wonderful ladies. I read Just Mercy four years ago as it was required reading for my son. I was shocked at the double standards. Lots of innocent people are locked up, on death row because they are black. I am ashamed that I did nothing constructive after reading the book four years ago. Today I started a monthly commitment to the Equal Justice Initiative. It is small but I hope to build on that to more engagement. I think it would be great to have an AMR book group that read this book and White Fragility. Also, it would be great if you could diversify the co-host position to include a black woman.
