#198 Rachel Cargle: Instagram, Activism & White Privilege
My guest today is the hugely inspiring activist, writer, and lecturer Rachel Cargle. I recorded this episode at The Wing in New York, which was fun. I first came across Rachel's work on Instagram. She was recently on Red Table Talk a US roundtable show streamed on Facebook and hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith and Rachel's clip on white privilege went viral, and I really wanted to spread her message on this podcast.
Her activist and academic work are rooted in providing intellectual discourse, tools, and resources that explore the intersection of race and womanhood. Her social media platforms now have a community of over 250k people which have grown pretty quickly since one of her signs at the Woman's March in 2018 went viral. Rachel guides conversations, encourages critical thinking and nurtures meaningful engagement with people all over the world. She is one busy woman, currently teaching and attending Columbia University where she is studying anthropology and women's studies. I am thrilled we got a chance to sit down and talk, hope you enjoy the episode!
