From Surviving to Thriving through Racial Justice: A Mother & Daughter Conversation in Five Vignettes—I. Early Education

This Equity Spotlight Vodcast was inspired by the important, yet under-recognized work, many youth are actively engaged in to create better school systems. This vodcast is structured into a series of five vignettes that share glimpses into critical moments and experiences that shaped and lead one high school student, Mila González, to racial justice work. They are structured in vignettes so that they can be used as connected stories, or independently. In this vignette, Mila describes her early education in Phoenix, AZ prior to moving to the Midwest. She highlights the role culture played in keeping her invested in school.
