The CAN/DID Inclusion Series
More content from the CAN/DID Inclusion Series will be released this month in recognition of Black History Month. These short-form videos, to be posted on the CAN/DID webpage and on official De Anza social media accounts, highlight the personal stories and experiences of Black students, classified professionals and faculty in our De Anza community. Here's a recap of featured students in the miniseries:
De Anza student Payton Sample reflected on a son-father talk about #DWB and on interacting with law enforcement, continuing on the themes in counselor Robert Alexander’s personal story of racial profiling during traffic stops while commuting to school at St. Mary’s College.
Another De Anza student, Daniel H., shared his thoughts on the importance of amplifying stories of Black success. His perspectives touched on themes of Black achievement and the paradox of high expectations and lack of recognition.
De Anza alumna Abriana Holliday talked about her realizations on the erasure and whitewashing of Black history from her textbooks when she was growing up.
