What does it mean to recognise our privilege? Where's the line between something that is a human right (water, food etc.) and something that is a privilege? How does a deeper understanding of privilege become meaningful action? Why are Malawian Children still being taught in English?

The sixth episode in this series about the unique relationship between Scotland and Malawi. Chimzy and Hazel talk about privilege.

We can't cover everything, this is a huge topic but we discuss guilt, white privilege, white saviours, Black Lives Matter, racism and how it all works in partnerships with Scottish and Malawian people.

We speak with 'Product of Scottish investment' Muthi Nhlema, comedian Daliso Chaponda, members of the Dunblane Boys Brigade, and there's music and conversation with Davie Luhanga aka Street Rat.

As part of the Scotland Malawi Partnership's Youth Festival 2021, Muthi's story around racism inspired the creation of a new school resource. If you work with young people and would be interested to help them explore their thoughts around latent racism, then please check out the resource "What Does Race & Equality Mean to You?
