After 20 years leading the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, Dr. Ben Danielson resigned in November in protest over what he claimed were racist practices at the clinic’s venerated parent institution, Seattle Children’s. For this edition of Northwest Newsmakers, we sit down for an extended conversation with the man in the middle of the story, hear directly from him about what led to his decision, see how he feels about what has happened since and get his perspective on the fight against systemic racism.
