Host and CBS News Radio correspondent Allison Keyes goes deep into social justice issues across the nation. Each week, Keyes has crucial conversations on topics including race, gender, disability, income inequality and beyond. Kaleidoscope examines current systemic inequities from violence against Asian Americans to the continued police killings of Black men, the increasing murders of law enforcement and the rise in food insecurity as the Covid-19 pandemic continues. New episodes every Friday.
In this week's Kaleidoscope, we discuss a report from the Alzheimer's Association finding that many Black, Asian, Hispanic and Native American caregivers say they've faced discrimination and language barriers when seeking help for friends or family with Alzheimer's. Their top concern is that providers don't listen to what they are saying because of their race. Allison speaks with Stephanie Monroe, director of African Americans Against Alzheimer's, which is part of UsAgainstAlzheimer's.org, about the problem.
