Behind the Curtain - Podcast Edition

Behind the Curtain Podcast: Kimberly McLaughlin-Smith

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
The roles of artists in society are varied and invaluable. UNCW’s Behind the Curtain Podcast explores the ways artists are adapting to new (if temporary) norms as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tune in to hear interviews with musicians, performers, and storytellers of all kinds, as we look to reinforce local and national artistic communities.

Our regular programming has been put on a temporary pause to shift the focus onto pressing social justice and racial equity issues facing our country. We will be engaging in conversations with various African American leaders on campus, discussing justice for George Floyd, the nationwide protests, and how arts can promote social change.

We begin our series with Kimberly McLaughlin-Smith, UNCW Inclusion and Diversity Learning Development Specialist. Her position is housed in Human Resources and she has been with the university since 2008. Since then, Kimberly has spearheaded an on-campus initiative known as, ‘Skin in the Game’. Within this group, women of all ethnicities engage in self-reflection and dissection of what unites us and what keeps us divided. Kimberly is also the producer of her radio show Reggae Redemption Radio on WRMR Coastal Carolina's Modern Rock 98.7.
