She Didn't Immediately Know How To Respond When Her Son Asked If They Were Still Slaves
A'Driane Nieves' young son asked her whether they were still slaves. In this video, she shares the thoughts she explored while figuring out how to answer. Please watch through to the end because she also talks about other groups who are marginalized in the U.S. And please listen with an open mind — just because some of us haven't personally had these experiences doesn't mean they don't exist. Empathy and understanding are important steps in the process of change. Maybe NSFW: This video contains some profanity, including the n-word.
