Our guest this episode is Lee Mun Wah. Mun Wah is a former special education teacher, a therapist, a film maker and a leading diversity, equity & inclusion trainer. His most famous film about racism, The Color of Fear, won the Gold Medal for Best Social Studies Documentary. In 1995, Oprah Winfrey did a one-hour special on Lee Mun Wah’s life and work that was seen by over 15 million viewers internationally. It is Lee Mun Wah’s belief that we cannot wait until tomorrow for some charismatic leader to appear who will bring us all together. We each must take a stand and personally participate in this important journey of confronting our fears and beginning a conversation not only with those we love but also with those we have been taught to fear.
