What connections can you make between the commentary in this video during that time period and the state of race relations today socially, educationally, politically, economically, and otherwise?

Are there things being “grappled with” today that you feel may sound the way this video sounds in the next 50 years?

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
