Episode 10 - Hoai An Pham, RC '19: #StopSpencer, and on being an STP Major (27:00) January 2, 2019
Hoai An Pham couldn't sit idly by after she heard that U-M was considering to allow Richard Spencer to speak on campus. She gathered with other student and community organizers in the coalition #StopSpencer whose aim was to give no platform for racism and hate speech at U-M or in SE Michigan. In the RC Podcast's 10th episode, RC senior Hoai An reflects on the lessons she learned while organizing as a student, as a Vietnamese American woman, and as someone who had to "unlearn" messages that had penetrated her beliefs. She also reveals her journey from pre-med to RC's Social Theory and Practice (STP) major, and gives us a sense for what it's like to be one of U-M's carillonneurs.
