Our third 2022 Turner Talk brought together Andrea Young, director of the Georgia ACLU, and Drew Westen, author of The Political Brain and noted messaging expert, to answer the question: how do we talk about CRT and race?
The right-wing has created a trendy new way to be racist – misappropriating the term “Critical Race Theory” and dubbing regular discussions of history as “CRT”. They use this moniker to politicize regular school board hearings, make teachers into targets, create polarizing dynamics that skew elections – and even hijack the questioning of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.
In this talk Young and Westen discuss the new research they have conducted on how to discuss how to talk about CRT and broader race issues in ways that can help as we get ready in 2022 and beyond.
