Yesterday, KUTV aired Jamie McGriff's interview with Alice Burch and myself as part of her Belonging In Utah series.
We are part of the Sema Hadithi Foundation focused on telling the story of Black history in Utah. Alice is the Director of Special Events while I am a researcher for the Black Women's group.
P.S.: Sema Hadithi is active on Facebook. Check them out.
