How I Got Over: Reinventing Language Around Race
Join us for a new project reinventing language around race through a series of conversations and performances hosted by WNYC's Rebecca Carroll that explore, express and examine what it means when a social construct becomes the social order. We want people to get personal. We want provocative dialogue. We want to generate new language to execute real change. We want to talk about fear – and how it’s different if you are black or white. We want to hear people explore racism.
