Desiree Hellegers speaks by phone with Lexi Peterson Burge of the Vancouver-based Noble Foundation about racism at Clark College, and in Southwest Washington more broadly, and about the continued fallout from the Clark College Foundation’s lawsuit to try to keep OPB and OPB reporter Molly Solomon from gaining access to records bearing on the racial climate at Clark College and the Clark College Foundation. 

Here are some links to Molly Solomon's reporting on racism at Clark College:
