About this Episode

Through her work as a diversity consultant, Roxann Johnson helps people have difficult conversations. Through her activism and leadership, she has become a recognized leader of Shreveport’s efforts toward racial reconciliation. Every community could use more voices like hers: strong, empathetic, humane, and wise. When she took the All Y’all stage, Roxann shared a disarmingly personal triptych of lessons from the life of an African American mom in the Deep South.
