The other day I had one of those NPR moments when I was driving home and could not turn off the engine until I had finished listening to the story that was playing. It was an interview with the author of Ghettocide: A True Story of Murder in America. The author was talking on Fresh Air and discussing different kinds of grief that people experience. She had interviewed many people who had lost loved ones and she noticed that their experiences with death were different and had longer lasting impacts especially if there was no closure of an arrest of the perpetrator. Her interview was so riveting, I ordered the book and will receive it tomorrow.
I found this as a video file that I received from Amy Jones at a conference a few years ago. I am still sifting through all the amazing resources she shared.
This video is called, "The Crayola Monologues." It is sharable for all ages, but especially great for social psychology and prejudice/bigotry issues. To be honest, I love this video. The artist who created it can be found at this link: http://www.nathangibbs.com/crayola-monologues/. This page contains lengthy commentary and exploration of color, race, and ethnicities and issues surrounding these ideas in our society.
