A White historian and an African-American poet team up to view the history of lynching in the U.S. with fresh eyes. What do we discover when we become curious about parts of our past that are shameful and violent? How might choosing to be curious about lynching's historic context and continuing consequences help us move forward? Join us next time when high school students from Central Falls, RI reflect on curiosity and what they learned from their trip to DC and their class "How to Change the World." As they say in Rhode Island, these kids are mad inspiring.
