On the Same Page: Explaining CRT

IN THE SAME PAGE

Explaining CRT

Wednesday, August 3, 7:30 PM ET  

As states continue to legislate the banning of critical race theory (CRT) in districts across the country, the generation coming of age right now wonders what CRT is and what it is not. Why is it such a flashpoint in today’s national conversation? Why do some people want it banned so badly? And with divisions over ideas like CRT, how can we achieve harmony living in a diverse world?

Join Random House in partnership with UnTextbooked, a podcast for the future brought to you by teen changemakers, on Zoom for On the Same Page: Explaining CRT, a cross-generational conversation with a renowned scholar on critical race theory and two inquisitive young podcaster-journalists.

Featuring Victor Ray, author of On Critical Race Theory: Why It Matters and Why You Should Care, and co-moderated by students Sydne Clarkeand Victor Ye, this discussion aims to demystify the often-misconstrued framework that theorizes the ways in which racism is embedded in our social institutions.
