"Sitting in the audience and seeing racism go unchallenged and seeing the dramatic difference when racism was challenged, was a very powerful experience. You truly shed light on how is institutional problem seeps into our personal life and the responsibility we each have to change it. I was not only challenged intellectually but very moved emotionally.

One thing I remember was how the students who were being targeted talked about how they felt more comfortable speaking up after another person confronted the racism. I took away the feeling and belief we can all work to end racism when we speak up."
