This week, we bring you our Sense of Community series, Conversations on Race and Racism. These conversations feature first-person perspectives, memories, and opinions of people in our community whose lives have been impacted by race and racism.
In this segment, we listen in on a conversation between cousins Mike Elmore and Blake Wilder, who grew up together. Elmore is an Army veteran, federal loan officer and Jiu-Jitsu teacher in West Plains, Missouri; Wilder is the author of "Random Bars: Poetry By An Original B-Boy" and lives in Las Vegas.
