Dive into history with author Barbara Diggs, and follow the evolution of race relations in America from the country’s earliest beginnings until present day. Find out about how race relations changed—and didn’t—through the eras of Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and Civil Rights, and under the presidencies of Barack Obama and Donald Trump through examples from Diggs’ book Race Relations: The Struggle for Equality in America. Learn about people from four different centuries—some famous, some ordinary citizens—who took great risks to fight for freedom, equality, and social justice.
