Racial justice on campus

In the wake of protests at college campuses across the country—where students are demanding changes to the ways that schools approach racial diversity—Youth Radio alumni shared their stories about race and campus life. “I haven’t experienced racism but I have experienced racial discomfort… It’s weird to be the only person of color in the room because you are recognizably different. You become the other. Maybe it’s just in my head, but all of a sudden my guard is up and I feel like there is something to prove.” Their perspectives that put the campus movements into context, on Youth Radio.
