Border Crossers

This workshop did not make the final cut of the film, but it was just as critical for the students.

After months of talking and learning about racism and oppression, the teens wanted to know what to actually do or say when confronted with it in real life. Border Crossers is a New York City-based non-profit that trains and empowers educators to interrupt patterns of racism and injustice in schools and communities. Former Executive Director Jaime-Jin Lewis and Border Crossers trainer J’nelle Bobb-Semple led a series of activities with the students to get them thinking about power structures in everyday life, followed by a role-play exercise to practice how to interrupt racial stereotyping, bigotry, or oppression at school and at home.
