The old saying, the more things change, the more they stay the same is an understatement when discussing racism. In 2009, Shanique Byrd, founder of Tocsin Magazine, produced a low-budget documentary on racism and its effects on American communities. The main focus of the documentary explored what racism is, how it has impacted our society, and solutions to fixing it.
During the production, Ms. Byrd invited author and professor Woody Doane of the University of Hartford after discovering his book "White Out" and other literature on race and racism. She also invited racially diverse individuals across New York City to discuss their experiences with racism.
The informative documentary provides insight into a conversation that many of us may never hear.
