"When They See Us": Giving Voice to the Pain is a social media movement
to discuss the issues of race in America. A series of discussions/panel
presentations were held online to foster discussions and an action plan
for social reform.
The first panel featured diverse Black panelists who responded
to anonymous questions about race from across the internet. This first step
aims to allow attendees to ask questions in complete anonymity and listen to
responses from various viewpoints from within the Black experience
(education, law, religion, theology, business, art, voices from and after the
Civil Rights Movement, etc.)
The second panel featured diverse panelists from outside
the black community who will reflect on the testimony. and experience of
the first panel.
The third part of the series invited guest and participants to reflect on the conversations and
forge a plan for change in our communities.
