HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:
For the last two years, we have been humbled to bear witness to an incredible youth racial healing project in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighbourhood. As an approach to improving community health, the Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center brought together 16 youth, half of whom identify as white and half of whom identify as people of colour, to participate in a year-long racial healing and reconciliation process. Through readings, racial affinity groups, workshops, healing circles, and speak outs, the youth are challenged to move beyond purely intellectual conversations about race and racism and are supported by each other and a team of community organizers and social workers, to experience the feelings that come up when we talk about racism and understand the ways it shapes our existence. The youth invited a camera to follow some of their activities, community teachings, and an emotional speak out activity.
