RACE to be Human is a documentary that addresses the impact of race and racism on our mental health as told through the lens of students, experts and educators, as well as how we can collectively move toward dignity and respect. RTBH explores how to foster healthy conversations about race and racism. RTBH is appropriate for ages 10 years old and up. RACE to be Human is on a mission: to join the global conversation and raise awareness with a more comfortable and positive approach. This 46-minute documentary shares micro-stories to define commonly used terms we all use when talking about racism.

The film delves into the effects of race and racism on individuals and our communities with:

  • Candid interviews with kids and teens, who discuss their experiences with race and racism, and its impact on their lives and relationships.
  • Expert perspectives on the history, present-day occurrences, and effects of racism.
  • Essential definitions and guidelines that help create safe spaces for cross-cultural dialogues about race and racism.
  • Discussion around allyship, as well as what action and accountability may look like to start shaping a more inclusive and equitable society today.
