People, Politics, and Perspective Ep. 5: Celebrating Black History Month amidst attacks on critical race theory

Between 2021 and 2022, in the aftermath of massive worldwide protests over the killing of George Floyd and conversations about police brutality, a total of 563 measures were introduced across every state except Delaware to limit the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT), according to a report from the CRT Forward Project of the Critical Race Studies (CRS) Program at UCLA School of Law.

CRT became a hot-button issue as conservatives, especially Republican politicians like Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, created a narrative that CRT was being taught in public schools and that it was causing white children to feel guilty and students to hate each other.

In the midst of February, and therefore Black History Month, listen as host Elaine Jiang discusses the attacks made on CRT in recent years and the importance of promoting Black history and other marginalized narratives with guest Susan Anderson, the history curator and program manager at the California African American Museum.
