Each of us navigate the world in unique ways, according to our diversity of identities, desires, and experiences. In this episode, we explore the importance of an inclusive college campus and the significance of adopting a racial identity. How can we encourage interracial and ethnic group contact? What are the roots of inequality, and how do we encourage empathetic conversation?
