How can we address racism through design principles?

Proposed Approach

What is race?

Where does racism come from?

How is racism experienced today?

2. Define

How might we limit the power that socially constructed racial segments has on our internal and external experience?

3. Ideate

Considerations

Parting Thoughts

A country is only as good… only as strong as the people who make it up and the country turns into what the people want it to become… I don’t believe any longer that we can afford to say that it is entirely out of our hands. We made the world we’re living in and we have to make it over.” — James Baldwin
