Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today?
YES! I think we all have been privy to the impact of what these events have in today's society, especially with policy brutality and the overcrowding of jails with POC. I can see it reflected in our education system with the way discipline/suspensions are handled and the lack of equity in hiring practices. I see it in how people treat issue and the criminalization of black youth.
What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
I'm thankful for the dialogue, the education, the empowerment, and the opportunity given to ALL to be on the right side of history. I believe that the dissemination of information through social media platforms such as documentaries, TEDTalks, Netflix, YouTube, etc. has helped bring the hidden chapters of history to light . Moreover, this new era of uploading videos has brought racism out of the dark and into the screens and it is not able to be ignored as easily.
