Race In America With Audio Description

00:00:00,179 --> 00:00:01,012
(inspiring orchestral music)

00:00:01,012 --> 00:00:03,563
- Race in America matters.

00:00:12,130 --> 00:00:14,553
It's in every part of our lives,

00:00:19,240 --> 00:00:21,493
and every part of our history.

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:27,303
It's our reality,

00:00:31,370 --> 00:00:33,403
and our future.

00:00:43,760 --> 00:00:46,230
To move our understandings
of race forward,

00:00:46,230 --> 00:00:48,460
the Smithsonian is
bringing people together

00:00:48,460 --> 00:00:51,130
to share their experiences.

00:00:51,130 --> 00:00:55,140
In times of joy and innovation,

00:00:57,930 --> 00:01:02,013
and in sadness and hardship,

00:01:03,340 --> 00:01:07,503
we place humanity at the
heart of everything we do.

00:01:08,700 --> 00:01:10,360
Through our Race Initiative,

00:01:10,360 --> 00:01:14,120
we're reaching out to
every home, every school,

00:01:14,120 --> 00:01:16,180
every community in the nation

00:01:16,180 --> 00:01:18,763
to take part in conversations about race.

00:01:20,050 --> 00:01:22,820
- This initiative will help the nation

00:01:22,820 --> 00:01:25,480
face its painful racial history

00:01:25,480 --> 00:01:29,060
and will provide a set
of robust online tools

00:01:29,060 --> 00:01:31,400
that will invite you to think critically

00:01:31,400 --> 00:01:36,220
and expansively about how race
affects the world around you.

00:01:36,220 --> 00:01:39,780
To that end, we're
bringing virtual Town Halls

00:01:39,780 --> 00:01:43,250
with global and national
leaders to your screens.

00:01:43,250 --> 00:01:47,010
We are creating pop-up
events across the country,

00:01:47,010 --> 00:01:49,050
and we're facilitating conversations

00:01:49,050 --> 00:01:52,690
with young activists
and Smithsonian experts.

00:01:52,690 --> 00:01:57,160
All of which will help promote
vital dialogue about race

00:01:57,160 --> 00:01:59,440
and examine the ways we can all make

00:01:59,440 --> 00:02:01,810
a positive change for our country.

00:02:01,810 --> 00:02:04,450
The Smithsonian is your portal

00:02:04,450 --> 00:02:08,023
to exploring the most
consequential issues of our time.

00:02:10,160 --> 00:02:12,660
- [Ariana] Visit our online portal.

00:02:12,660 --> 00:02:14,763
Use and download our resources.

00:02:15,970 --> 00:02:17,933
Tune in to our live streams.

00:02:18,770 --> 00:02:21,990
We want to inspire brave conversations

00:02:21,990 --> 00:02:26,990
about race and racism in
all parts of our lives.

00:02:29,240 --> 00:02:30,973
Race in policymaking,

00:02:33,210 --> 00:02:34,303
in healthcare,

00:02:36,520 --> 00:02:38,163
in wealth distribution.

00:02:40,280 --> 00:02:42,143
Race in public spaces,

00:02:43,590 --> 00:02:44,963
in popular culture,

00:02:46,600 --> 00:02:49,483
And the impact of race around the globe.

00:02:51,730 --> 00:02:54,030
Be part of this networked community

00:02:54,030 --> 00:02:55,680
that is coming together to share

00:02:55,680 --> 00:03:00,010
the lived experiences
of Americans everywhere.

00:03:00,010 --> 00:03:03,310
Because no two experiences are the same,

00:03:03,310 --> 00:03:06,250
but everyone has a racial identity,

00:03:06,250 --> 00:03:08,773
and everyone can enact change.

00:03:09,740 --> 00:03:13,460
Race, community, and our shared future.

00:03:13,460 --> 00:03:15,033
This is the Smithsonian.
