The news special also teaches viewers about race and discrimination with the help of prominent researchers and educators, including Temple University professor Dr. Molefi Asante, a leading scholar in African American studies, and Dr. Peggy McIntosh, who popularized the term “white privilege” in a groundbreaking 1989 essay.
