Today we explore a topic that has become a point of controversy in the U.S. and one we believe we can all benefit from understanding more broadly. Critical Race Theory, or CRT, is a graduate-level academic concept that is more than 40 years old, created by legal scholars in the late 1970’s. We both feel that we can use this week’s episode as an opportunity for all of us to learn more about CRT and discuss what it is and what it is not. We look forward to hearing your learning from this episode.
