Before becoming the first African-American woman elected to a state legislature in the United States, Crystal Bird Fauset worked with AFSC to expose broad new audiences to the issues of race in America.
The May, 2010 addition of the MARStar newsletter featured a piece on racial equity. We received a lot of feedback about the story including an offer from Carolyn Byerly to write an additional article about her active role in trying to reshape national communications policy around women and minority media ownership. She believes that one barrier to a national dialogue about race (and also gender) relations is that people of color and women have almost no control of media companies. What follows is her response to "Conversations about Race and Equity."
