Truth Be Told: Race on Campus

How would you feel if your new college roommate thought you were only admitted because of your race? What do you do if you’re the only person of color in your class and the discussion turns to slavery, the Vietnam War or immigration policy? You’re African-American -- what do you do when the fraternity down the street decides to throw a “Blackface” party? We get personal with college students, just as their campuses become pivot points in the national conversation about race. Many young students of color are protesting the deaths of unarmed black people as part of the wider Black Lives Matter movement. And they’re aiming their activism at their schools and universities now, too. We’ll take a more intimate look and ask them to tell the stories they’re telling their closest friends about how they personally experience race.
