Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw On the Truth About Critical Race Theory
In recent months, Republican lawmakers in close to a dozen states have been trying to stop schools from teaching Critical Race Theory—or really any examination of America’s history of oppression. So what is CRT, why are legislators obsessed with it, and how worried should we all be about these attacks on teachers? Law professor Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw has the answers—because she helped develop Critical Race Theory to begin with. Listen as host Brittany Packnett Cunningham sits down with Crenshaw (whom she calls “the godmother of our show”—she’ll explain) to unpack the whole alarming situation. Plus, Brittany brings us the latest Untrending News. Recorded June 29th
