 Video: Undoing Racism in our Schools

“We have to talk about race, and how the racism that permeates our society is manifesting in our schools.  Because we are both the front line and last line of defense for millions of children.” Watch Morningside Center Deputy Executive Director Tala Manassah’s keynote address at the Mindfulness in Education Conference.  Other speakers included Daniel Goleman, Marc Brackett, Michael Yellow Bird, Jennifer Buffett, Tim Shriver, and Linda Lantieri.
