High school students come together to discuss racism, bias

Local News

More than 70 area high school students coming together Sunday afternoon for a discussion on racial and social inequalities.

“Points of Diversity” hosting its second of six public programs at Roanoke College.

It’s all part of the “Changing the Narrative” project, which aims to replace bias and racism with more inclusive stories.

Board members and discussion facilitators hope it’ll have a ripple effect.

“I really hope that students have these meaningful conversations, but also take that as a spark and bring it to their schools and try to host events, try to talk to administration about hot-button issues like bias and prejudice and hate,” said Points of Diversity Board Member Nabeel Raza.
