Tweet: | Facebook: Like us on Facebook! These days it can be so hard to talk about race and racism. It's taboo, polarizing, and nuanced. But it is also one of the most important topics of our generation. So we went to the streets to have a conversation about it. From Boston to LA, we heard stories that were raw and honest. This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we are proud to share with you "World Without Black People", a glimpse into the conversation that we had about race and what it is like to be a black person living in America. We made this video to share these stories, stand in solidarity with our black brothers and sisters, and challenge you to have a similar conversation of your own. We made this video because #BlackLivesMatter. Read a letter from the director here: | #WeCanDoBetterBy CAMPAIGN | "Get to know somebody that doesn't look like you, worship next to somebody who doesn't look like you, share a meal with somebody who doesn't look like you and come with no expectations...then you'll see who we are." If you are watching this video, this is your call to action. We want you to join us in our #WeCanDoBetterBy Campaign: 1.) TWEET US - In 140 characters or less, tell us what you can do to break down racial stereotypes and inspire others to do the same. Finish the sentence: #WeCanDoBetterBy....., and don’t forget to tag @JubileeProject. You can use this link: 2.) WATCH VIDEOS - We put together a short playlist of some of our favorite videos about race / racism. They have facts and practical advice on how we can do better. Check them out: 3.) TAKE ACTION - Meet up with a friend who is a different race than you and have a conversation about personal experiences of racism. Keep an open mind and loving heart.
