Jackie Palmore

Jackie Palmore and her former husband Terry Palmore discuss the subtle and not-so-subtle racial bias they experienced as a mixed-race couple, from their courtship and marriage through parenting their biracial child, Morgan. A nurse and palliative care coordinator, Jackie’s perspective on race has been deepened by caring for hundreds of patients near the end of their lives; she observes that death is a powerful equalizer—that race and all of the other “separators” cease to matter in the end, as we all face the same mortality.
