Critical Race Theory Film

Watch my latest video-essay on critical race theory.

Last month, I put out a call for support to make a film about critical race theory. You responded in record numbers and I’m proud to announce that the film has just been released on YouTube.

The debate about critical race theory is coming to a peak this week, with coverage in all major media outlets—and a fierce disinformation campaign from its supporters, who claim that opponents “don’t understand CRT,” that it’s “not being taught in schools,” and that state legislation seeks to “ban the teaching of history.”

I made this film to set the record straight, walking viewers through the origins of critical race theory, what it’s done to our public institutions, and how you can fight it in your community.
