Part 2 looks at the experience of being the "Only One" from the perspective of adults who were "Only Ones" - one white, and one black. We discuss how race makes that experience different, and how that experience is ever present, even in adulthood.
The fear of your kid being the "only one" often pushes white families away from global majority schools. We'll talk about it in two parts - parents of kids who are the only one, and adults who were the only one. In Part 1, we're joined by Lauren from Pennsylvania. Look for Part 2 next week.
One of the reasons people often give for NOT choosing a global majority school is that they don't want to sacrifice their kids on the altar of social justice. We dig into this idea with Denise from Santa Fe.
