Talking About Race

There's never been a more critical time for us to stop and learn about race and racism in the United States. 

On this page we've collected our ongoing coverage about how racism plays out in our relationships, at our workplaces — in every facet of our lives. We've gathered unique perspectives and called upon trusted experts to guide these conversations about race.

There's so much work to be done. Let's learn together to build a more equitable future.

"Stay vigilant. Stand on your squares. Understand you're going to be seeing opposition when creating change."

Sharlene Bates, racial justice activist

"I feel like sometimes people think Black folks just wake up in the morning ready to accuse someone of being a racist. That's not an experience we want. All we're trying to do is enjoy our autonomy." 

 Garrett McQueen, radio host and musician

"Racism creates a different reality for people of color in our society."

Ijeoma Oluo, author of "So You Want To Talk about Race?" 

"I firmly believe that this history has been forgotten, because you can't look at the language of these deeds and understand this to be anything other than what it is, which is absolutely pure white supremacy."

Kirsten Delegard, Mapping Prejudice project director

"One of the most damaging aspects of a microaggression is the plausible deniability."

Sunitha Chandy, licensed clinical psychologist
