How We Got To BIPOC

The acronym BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous and (Other) People of Color and was coined to reckon with issues of race and inclusion. Christopher MacDonald-Dennis is chief diversity officer at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and he joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the evolution of BIPOC and similar terms – and why some people embrace them while others don’t. His article, written with Andrea Plaid, “’BIPOC’ Isn’t Doing What You Think It’s Doing” was published by Newsweek.
