A digital series on race and who we are as Americans.
First a Facebook video went viral. The video was Nydia’s response to a driver who almost hit her as she was crossing a Philadelphia street. As the woman drove off, she yelled out her window, “THIS IS AMERICA.”
Those three words suggested to Nydia that the driver did not see her as an American. And after a lifetime of ignoring similar incidents, Nydia finally responded in that now viral Facebook video. It sparked a national conversation about race and a journey to understand the American experience.
