Critical Race Theory Panic: “A Tried and True Playbook Move”

Critical race theory, a framework that aims to teach how racism has shaped U.S. laws and institutions, is being banned in classrooms around the country. Republicans are using critical race theory as a dog whistle to mobilize suburban white voters against Democrats.

The Renaissance Of The Black Press

Black media has long been a staple of Black and immigrant communities that have often had to rely on these newspapers to inform them of stories significant to their communities.
