About this Video
2017 TEDxBeaconStreet Interview with Lillian Medville. “Whether we acknowledge it or not, race, sex, gender, class, and privilege are all part of our daily lives no matter who we are, what we look like, or where we’re from. But too often we don’t talk about these issues for fear of saying the wrong thing, or that the conversations will be difficult, bitter, and even painful.
Does it have to be that way? Artist and activist Lillian Medville has designed a surprising—and surprisingly effective—alternative.”
