When racist incidents occur, students often need historical perspective to understand the depth of the offense. That's why our Teaching Hard History framework is so important, and that's why we're offering this edition of The Moment. Your students may have questions about the governor of Virginia's admission that he once dressed in blackface. We hope these resources on the harm caused when non-black people "play black" will help you start a thoughtful, productive conversation in your classroom.
