Exclusive Interview: "Racism Didn't Die in the 1960's" - Shirley Aaron Tells MNI Alive Why

Author Shirley Aaron speaks about race and racism in the United States

Is racism dead? Is Donald Trump a racist? Is America a racist country? Are the racists of the 60s and 70s who were in hiding now emboldened by the recent political rhetoric to now overtly show their racism and their hate? How do we, as a society, move on from all this racial turmoil?

Shirley Aaron, respected Author, retired English teacher, and also a retired media specialist from Georgia, spoke exclusively with Marketing, News & Information Media, answering all of those question above with a compelling personal story garnered from her upbringing in the South during segregation. 

She shares during our conversation what she witnessed then growing up amongst cotton mill workers and farmers in the Deep South, and what she is witnessing today with the seeming rise of racism, bigotry and intolerance.

Shirley also shares how she thinks society can move on, and grow together without race being the social sore that it has become in modern day America.
