Looking Beyond the Protests - Racism in America
We wanted to discuss racism as a whole in America. We wanted to look beyond mainstream media coverage of the death of George Floyd and the protests that have followed and hear real experiences and perspectives in order to achieve an understanding that will last longer than this media cycle. We covered the way history is taught in schools, racism on high school campuses, and performative activism. We additionally heard the experiences of many African American participants who have been racial profiled or experienced racism and talked about the ways we can combat implicit bias and racial profiling. We further examined the use of the Confederate flag in America and Trump's decision not to rename forts and monuments named after Confederate generals. Our participants included teens from Florida, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, and two participants from Ghana, Africa who gave us an international perspective!
