In the first half of today's episode, we discuss the profound implications that stereotypes can have on BIPOC children and how it can shape their view of the world growing up. We use personal stories to explain how we often learn our place in the world based on prejudices and racism.

In the second part of the show, we tell the origin story of Civic Cipher and explain why we believe the show is important in the current social and political climate in the U.S. Our Way Black History Fact details the origin story of the Urban League.
