The Feminine Pronoun Series: “Black” or “African American”? (No. 35)

As part of a creative diversity and inclusion workshop I facilitated at Lewis University, I asked people one question: "Which do you prefer? "Black" or "African American"?

The responses were alternately surprising and soulful. They served as the centerpiece of the workshop, and they created a jumping off point for one of the most fascinating discussions I've had to date.
