This video tells the story of when I started to acknowledge the ways race matters. I describe learning about different cultures when I moved to Washington State. However, it has been until college that I have become more educated about racism and racial justice in society. Working on this project has helped me understand the way my story connects to the BLM movement as well as recognizing the way we connect to these issues. It’s also a creative way in expressing the importance of these type of issues in society because everybody has a story to tell.
