The following is the third in a series of podcast conversations with interesting people on the topic of race in America. Today's guest is Nancy Williamson, a resident of Virginia. Nancy and Wink are distant cousins who learned of each other on 23 and Me. Even those of good intentions can fall prey to caricatures and stereotypes based on race. Welcome to a meeting of cousins across the color line and the dangers of misperceiving others.
