Directed by Scilla Andreen, RACE to Be Human addresses the apprehension and confusion so many of us feel when it comes to talking about race and racism. The film program examines micro-aggressions, allyship, the role of social media, and more. It also shares how we can promote curiosity, self-reflection, and empathy through conversations at home, school and work.
