PBS News Hour, PBS.org, January 28, 2021. Video, 3:48 min.
Filmed shortly before the pandemic with two high-school students in Georgia, Audrey McNeal, and Shaylon Walker, now in their first year of college. The pair recount troubling and traumatic experiences. From stereotyping to a death threat. And how they have used their intellect to understand a problem with a long history and march forward regardless.
“The first thing you have to do is acknowledge the problem. Even if it may not be you or your people group. You have to take a step back and look in and see that something is wrong.” – Shaylon Walker
