How should white college students talk about race? What do they need to understand as they enter the conversation, and what challenges should they expect?
To explore these and other complex questions of diversity, identity, and equity, Usable Knowledge has launched a new series of video conversations, streamed live on Facebook, called Walking the Talk. Each episode in the series will take on these questions in authentic, live conversations with educators, policymakers, and students at every level, all navigating these issues in the real world. The series is hosted by Domonic Rollins, who leads diversity and inclusion efforts at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
In the first episode of Walking the Talk, Rollins spoke with Madeline Lessing, a social work student at Wheelock College. Watch an excerpt of their live conversation, and see key takeaways below the video.
