Coffee Woke Them up: a conversation with the Philly Starbucks upstanders

rs=w-400,cg-trueMelissa DePino and Michelle Saahene were not racial justice activists when they made their way to Starbucks in Philadelphia on April 12, 2018. They connected because they were among the few who spoke up in a busy coffee shop after seeing two black men arrested for not buying coffee while waiting for a business associate. Michelle, who is black, also took video of the incident. Melissa, who is white, posted the video, which soon went viral. They join us to tell us what they’ve learned over the months since and to talk about the advocacy work they now do together. Check out their website From Privilege to Progress Please bring your stories and strategies for doing racial justice work across race to share!
