Critical race theory–a subject of controversy and misinformation

Ohio State University Associate Professor Joni Acuff talks with us about what critical race theory actually is—as opposed to how it’s described by its critics—and gives examples of racial inequality being imbedded in society. The three of us discuss legislative efforts to ban critical race theory. Legislators say they want students to be presented with the facts and make their own decisions, but that’s not what’s really going on. Opponents of critical theory race actually want to suppress what teachers can present in the classroom and don’t want any discussion about racial bias being baked into the system.

We’re running a brief survey for our listeners, and we’d love to hear from you.  Go to and give us your input. It takes just two minutes–literally.
