When They See Us: The Affects of Structural Racism on Black & Brown Youth

Episode Summary

We're ending season one of What is Black podcast with a discussion about "When They See Us," the Ava DuVernay docuseries about five teenagers falsely accused and convicted for a crime they didn't commit. Much has been written about the series but I wanted to explore with my guests Dr. Baraka Floyd, Dr. Frank Clark, Dr. David de Angel Sola and Dr. Angela Moemeka how the series portrays how the adverse childhood experience and toxic stress of structural racism impacts Black and Brown youth then and now and how the series can be a conversation starter for families and communities to address racism.
