Growing Up White: An Upbringing without Race

Healing Race

In the first two episodes, you could see how Todd and Andre think about and approach the issue of race in our country very differently. In the next three episodes, they turn the clock back to explore how their different upbringings laid the groundwork for their different approaches to race relations.

In this episode, Andre asks Todd what it was like to grow up white, and Todd reflects on the role that race played in his upbringing, also sharing a story about the first time he experienced a racial conflict. They also discuss what it even means and what leads us to identify with a race. Click to the link for this video to get to that conversation now. Enjoy…
