Inside the Critical Race Meltdown at Juilliard

The president of Juilliard’s Black Student Union, Marion Grey, insists Black lives do not matter at Juilliard.  Grey says she was traumatized after participating in NYU theater professor Michael McElroy’s workshop titled “Roots to Rep,” where students were required to listen to a mock slave auction taken from an episode of “Roots.”  This video examines Professor McElroy’s objectives, excerpts from Marion Grey’s response video, and a clip from the mock slave auction itself, and analyzes how aspects of Critical Race Theory and anti-racism seem to be at odds with the very people these approaches aim to help.
