What’s Code Switch about?
From the birth of the colonies that would become the United States of America up through the present day, Africans and African Americans have been a part of this country.
Even after the Trans-Atlantic slave trade ended in 1865 and school segregation was ruled unconstitutional in 1954, the United States is still experiencing the residual effects that came from the antiquated ideologies of a nation divided by entitlement, privilege and the color of one’s skin.
In a time where facts and opinions can be shared in an instant through social media, there are millions of individual conversations about social justice issues happening simultaneously. It can be understandably daunting to participate in a hard conversation with someone bringing generations of experience to the table.
NPR’s Code Switch is unapologetically opening the discussion on race and continuing the dialogue on how we can work together to bring an end to social and racial injustice in America and around the world.
