Straight Talk about Critical Race Theory with Senator Neal

Dr. Anthony Brown (University of Texas Austin), Dr. Greg Vincent (Executive Director of the NAACP Education and Civil Rights Initiative at the University of Kentucky) and I join Senator Gerald Neal to discuss the growing conversation about Critical Race Theory. What is it? Is it taught in our elementary schools? This is a very important conversation considering the current context and escalating critical perspectives about what should be taught to children in schools.

See also our prior Straight Talk conversation “Should Critical Race Theory be banned” here and the NAACP Education and Civil Rights Initiative’s national panel on Critical Race Theory here.
