LET'S TALK ABOUT RACE
One hundred fifty-five years after the abolition of slavery and 56 years after desegregation, racism continues to be widespread in the United States. Recent incidents of police brutality against African-Americans have sparked fierce protests. How do young African-Americans experience racism in their everyday lives, and how do they believe it can be overcome? Sarah Klewes looked for answers in Washington, DC.
