About the show
#DearWorldLive is back for its second season! Beginning Wednesday, October 21, host Nelufar Hedayat will talk to a range of guests about the fight for racial equality, and the ways social and political systems around the world uphold racist systems. Each episode of our second season examines racial inequalities under a different lens, with episodes about environmental racism, disparities in health care and art as protest.
#DearWorldLive is an online discussion show from Doha Debates, featuring Doha Debates’ correspondent and Course Correction host Nelufar Hedayat. In each conversation, streamed live across Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and Twitch, Nelufar talks to two special guests — a mix of thinkers, writers, policymakers, activists and people who are on the ground, putting into practice the solutions we need to identify and upend racism.
We also invite students and other young people from around the world to join the virtual conversation and engage face-to-face with our guests. Livestream viewers have the opportunity to participate as well by submitting comments and questions with the hashtag #DearWorldLive.
