America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the fourth installment of the series. Joined by the forever insightful/ever knowledgeable Dr. Keila Foster, we discuss episode 4, "There’s Nothing Funny about Race," of the America to Me series. We discuss the purple elephant in the room as Jada and Charles handle Mr. Podolner lightheartedness toward race in his physics class. That discussion entails making student connections, white privilege, the importance of teaching life lessons, the importance of being able to “read the room,” and much more.
