multiLENS is a podcast series created to help the Noblesville community lean into conversations with kids, at a young age, about issues in society, examining issues that impact the community and the schools with a focus on equity and inclusion.
In this recording, released on February 26, 2021, the topic of Black History Month is discussed and its importance in helping us learn about racism and the role we each play in changing systems so the system does not perpetuate status quo. The guests share personal experiences along with what they have learned in advocating for the lives of black Americans and their space within a country that was founded on racism. They begin the conversation with the importance of truly listening to one another and end with suggestions on how we can all be part of the solution to having a more just society.
