Cyla reads excerpts from A Kids Book About Racism by Jelani Memory and Systemic Racism by Jordan Thierry, and explains the definition as read from those books on both.

We talk about what Racism sounds like, feels like and as white people, try to consider the struggle and oppression Black and Brown people must feel on a daily basis. We take the time to consider what we could do differently to contribute positively every day in our own lives and to speak out against racism whenever we see it.
