Listening to alternative points of view isn’t a particularly favored activity in many corners of society these days. But it remains one of the best ways – perhaps one of the only ways – of bridging the many divides (racial, economic, cultural) currently afflicting many aspects of our world. So argues Ronald A. Crutcher, president of the University of Richmond and author of I Had No Idea You Were Black: Navigating Race on the Road to Leadership (Clyde Hill Publishing).
In this week’s episode of The Key, Crutcher discusses his leadership style, his views on campus race relations and affirmative action, and the importance of understanding the pain words can cause while still favoring free speech over limiting it.
