Created for schools, communities and corporations, RACE To Be Human addresses the apprehension and confusion so many of us feel when it comes to talking about race and racism. The film examines micro-aggressions, allyship and the role of social media. It also shares how we can participate and build empathy through conversations at home, work and school.
The program includes the full film, 11 film chapters, 2 bonus chapters, discussion guides, strategies and tips to check ourselves and others while inspiring self reflection, so that as individuals we are more aware, and as communities we can move forward more equitably.
As with our other film programs, RACE To Be Human weaves together personal testimonials and insights from students and parents with perspectives and data from educators, mental health practitioners and diversity and inclusion experts. Appropriate for all ages starting at 10 years old.
