This weeks TED Talk: How to Deconstruct Racism, One Headline at a Time
with Baratunde Thurston
Baratunde Thurston is an Emmy-nominated writer, activist and comedian who has worked for The Onion, produced for The Daily Show, advised the Obama White House, and cleaned bathrooms to pay for his Harvard education. In this thought provoking and often hilarious Ted Talk he explores the phenomenon of white Americans calling the police on black Americans who have committed the crimes of ... eating, walking or generally "living while black" and reveals the power of language to change stories of trauma into stories of healing.
Join us to watch the TED Talk as a group and have a lively discussion afterwards.
