Today we continue our series The Listening Project. The past few weeks we've heard individuals talk about their personal experience with racial and social inequality.
Last November, Carbondale Community Arts held a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As part of the program they hosted a Race Card Project installment. The Race Card Project is a national initiative that asks people to talk about their experience with race in six words. Some of the participants shared their words with us.
Today we hear from Jessica Bradshaw of Carbondale.
Regarding your experience in high school... why do you think that happened?
From what you experienced in high school do you see that now in other settings?
That's Jessica Bradshaw of Carbondale. She is a member of the Carbondale City Council. Her story was recorded on November 8th, 2014 during the Carbondale Community Arts University commemoration of the civil rights act of 1964.
WSIU's The Listening Project is a community engagement initiative that chronicles the stories, experiences, and history of the people who call this region home.
