Racism struggles By- Arshelle Johnson

The main story of my podcast is looking into the early life of my mom and how growing up in a white neighborhood affected her. I am telling the story of how she crossed the boundary of the racism and not letting it hold her back.Everyone knows that growing up can be a struggle in it selfs. But try growing up in the 70's in a predominantly white neighboorhood. How  can someone deal with the small racist digs everyday, from not only students but teachers.

When talking to my I feel like I learned a lot about her. I have a new respect for what she went through. She crossed a lot of boundaries. She not only proved to the teacher that she could be successful in life. I am very proud of my mom getting past those boundaries.
