As we strive to improve conversations about race, racism, and racial justice, the environment in which we’re speaking seems to be constantly shifting. Our writers and poets offer their different perspectives on race and how to find the words for richer conversations with moderator Miles Merrill.

Saat kami berusaha untuk meningkatkan perbincangan mengenai ras, rasisme, dan keadilan rasial, lingkungan tempat kami berbicara nampaknya terus berubah. Penulis dan penyair kami menawarkan perspektif berbeda tentang ras dan bagaimana menemukan kata-kata yang lebih luas dengan moderator Miles Merrill.
