Embracing Inclusion Across All Identities

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Reniqua Allen explores the intersection of age and race in her book It Was All a Dream, bringing to life the stories of black millennials who are striving for the American Dream despite discriminatory policies that contribute to higher rates of student debt, unemployment, and incarceration than their white counterparts.
