In celebration of Black History Month, members of the Black Googler Network created a film that explores their past experiences as it pertains to their initial realizations of being Black. This project was inspired from the 2017 CNN feature of, The First Time I Realized I Was Black, and the 1903 book by W.E.B. Du Bois, The Souls of Black Folk. Audience members of the live talk just finished watching this incredibly powerful film that showcases some poignant experiences that Black people in America face on a daily basis.

Stephanie Hicks, PhD is a Lecturer at the Program on Intergroup Relations at the University of Michigan and completed her master’s degree and PhD in Educational Policy Studies – Social Foundations at the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Stephanie sat down with Googler, Brady Bennett, to unpack what it means to be Black in America and discusses the catalysts, realizations and misperceptions of the Black experience through the lens of her own personal experiences and her studies on intergroup dialogue and DEI policy. Enjoy!

Moderated by Brady Bennett.
