john powell on Othering & Belonging

Jul 18, 2020-- john a. powell is one of the foremost public intellectuals in the areas of civil rights, racism, ethnicity, housing and poverty. Despite a distinguished career, powell spells his name in lowercase on the simple and humble idea that we are part of the universe, not over it. He has introduced into the public lexicon the concepts of "othering and belonging." For powell, "othering" hurts not only people of color, but whites, women, animals and the planet itself, because certain people are not seen in their full humanity. Belonging is much more profound than access; "it's about co-creating the thing you are joining" rather than having to conform to rules already set. More in this powerful interview. (2959 reads)
