The Collective Perspective Podcast celebrated the bicentennial of Jacksonville and Juneteenth on June 15, 2022 with a special discussion, featuring guests: Jeremy Mincey, former NFL player and producer of the upcoming film “13th and Pine“, and Tatiana Yoguez, book author of “Life Outside the Game: A Sex Trafficking Testimony.

The cohosts and their guests share stories and different perspectives from their personal experiences and childhoods. They discussed the following seven Race Card prompts: “How did your family and community influence your understanding of race?”; “How do you respond to people who do not speak English?”; “How does fear affect racial understanding in America?”; “What do these hashtags mean to you: #blacklivesmatter, #bluelivesmatter, #alllivesmatter?”; “Do you think racism is a learned behavior? If so, can it be unlearned?”; “Do the majority of Americans see the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism or a symbol of Southern pride?”‘ and “When you witness someone being discriminated against or persecuted because of their race, do you intervene?”

Sponsored by the 904WARD.org, this finale episode of Season 1 was recorded in front of a live audience at the Underbelly in Jacksonville, Florida. The video version can be found on MTSJAX YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/kCpAUl7xNl8.

About the 904WARD Race Cards

Too often, discussions about race either stay at surface-level or happen only among audiences steeped in knowledge about sociology, history, systemic racism, and privilege. The goal of the Race Cards is to facilitate honest, authentic discussion around race in a way that is accessible to everyone. Each deck of cards contains more than 40 questions, that span participants’ personal experiences, the current state of justice and race relations in our communities, and participants’ take on concepts such as privilege and equity.

The Race Cards are designed for use with any small group — family, co-workers, friends, neighbors, faith groups, or even fellow community members that have never met.

The 904WARD has curated a special Bicentennial Edition of the Race Cards which contain questions specifically for our community to commemorate is 200th Birthday. Those questions (included as part of the host packet) should be used for the purposes of the 200 Conversations for 200 Years campaign, because they allow the focus for the year to be on our past, present and beyond.

Let’s lead with the magnitude of ambition and courageousness that this extraordinary historical moment demands. Join the Collective Perspective Podcast and the 904WARD as one of the hosts for the 200 Conversations for 200 Years campaign. Volunteers are needed throughout 2022 to host these dynamic dialogues that can lead to racial healing and a thriving community. Visit 904WARD.org for more information.
