If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Lucy Michael and Dr. Fidele Mutwarasibo. Dr. Michael is a White Woman and a sociology lecturer at the University of Ulster; her research focuses on race and ethnicity, minority experiences of crime and victimisation, and leadership around equality issues. Dr. Mutwarasibo was born in Rwanda and relocated to Ireland in 1995. He has a PhD in sociology and is a founding member of the Africa Centre and a member of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission. He’s done extensive research immigrants rights and politics and racism against non-white people seeking refuge in Ireland. Dr. Lucy encouraged us to invite Dr. Mutwarasibo on the program. We’ll review her remarks from this year’s European Network Against Racism (ENAR) conference, where she emphasized that “black and black African people experience the most racism.”
