I must say I am overwhelmed and probably naive. As a child raised in the 50s & 60s, I was fortunate to live in Northern Ontario surrounded by a large extended family. 2nd generation immigrant fully immersed in our community within the greater community. Life struggles existed as the family worked hard to ensure we were taken care of. We were baby boomers, so escaped the depression and war that our parents and grandparents lived through. I am going to guess they chose to protect us from the bad and learned enough to teach us to be accepting of others. As the years go by learning - the women's movement, the Vietnam War, 9-11, residential schools, and a myriad of other events started to shape my view of the world. My circle grew once I left for university. Challenging my view didn't really begin until I entered education and began to appreciate the struggles for some. Delving into history began in the 80s and 90s, understanding the impact - slow to process. the past 3 decades the journey to really learn more started. Reading books, watching movies, listening to stories, taking courses to broaden my understanding for diversity and inclusion and yet, watching these videos broke my heart. How can people believe they are 'better than'? How can so many stand by, silent? How can real change happen? Because if any of us believe it is all better now, we are in trouble. Where do we find the courage to break down the barriers? How can we discover our own biases and move forward? This is tough stuff, necessary stuff. Thank you for choosing the videos that will educate.
