Days after the massacre at a black church in Charleston, S.C., Utahns are considering recent racially charged incidents closer to home, including an abandoned effort to celebrate Caucasian heritage and a group that marched with the Confederate flag in a Herriman parade.

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., BYU graduate student Mica McGriggs and University of Utah professors Karen Johnson and Wilfred Samuels join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about racism and what Utahns can learn from the broader national discussion on race.
