    Day 1: How to be an Antiracist.

    Watch this video that explains, while race and racism have a real and significant impact on our lives, race is a social construct and one that has changed over time. None of the broad categories that come to mind when we talk about race can capture an individual’s unique story. For more information, read this article on how science and genetics are reshaping our understanding of race or listen to this podcast featuring historian Ibram X. Kendi, author of “How to be an Antiracist.”
