In June 2020, retired Maricopa County (Ariz.) Superior Court Judge Colleen McNally penned an opinion in The Arizona Republic, “I didn't know I grew up racist until later in life.” In this conversation, we’ll talk with Judge McNally about her piece, what prompted her to write it, and what she’s learned since recognizing this and what she hopes others can learn from it. Join us for this important conversation on anti-racism during Black History Month.
