For this activity, spend some time exploring the Seattle Times Project: “Under our Skin.” (链接到外部网站。) It is an interactive project composed of short videos in which many different people think about and discuss concepts around race discourse and their own experiences with race in our contemporary culture. Each clip is very short (3-5 minutes).
- Watch at least five of the videos
- For your activity this week, reflect on the topics you explored in the “Under our Skin” project, and discussed in Rayshawn Ray’s interview and the article “On the Development of Terrortory.” Choose ONE of the two learning outcomes listed above and write a reflection:
- Reflect on how these authors/stories/discussions inform your critical thinking about power privilege and inequality; OR
- Reflect on how these authors/stories/discussions shape your development of empathy toward individuals with experiences that might be different from your own.
Your reflection should be 250 – 500 words, written in paragraph form.
