    Then. Now. When. Video Series

    An Educational Experience

    For Leaders Closing the Racial Equity Gap

    Transform your leadership practice to one that embraces racial equity as you seek to understand your role in creating a different future. Highlighting the stories and experiences of Black Americans, the Then. Now. When. Video Series gives leaders a foundation in our collective history, an understanding of local issues, encourages brave conversations, and inspires meaningful action. 

    The self-guided Then. Now. When. Video Series is made up of seven modules (12 videos). Each module focuses on a particular topic, conveyed through readings, videos, and music. Modules, which were inspired by articles in the New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project, include Setting the Stage, Capitalism, Healthcare, Wealth Gap, Undemocratic Democracy, Mass Incarceration, and Taking Action. The live series was recorded in 2021 and was adapted to video for use in work teams, faith groups, book clubs, service clubs, etc. or experienced on your own.
