Milwaukee Stories Podcast: Martha Barry

Martha Barry, racial justice director at the YWCA of Southeast Wisconsin, talks about the legacy of racism, what white people can do to confront prejudice and structural injustice — the importance of changing “hearts and minds” — and her personal journey of listening, learning and being exposed to different experiences.

“As a white person, if every part of your life is all about white people, and everywhere you go that’s all you see, then you haven’t done enough to … actually diversify your life,” says Barry.
