'Un-Fair' Anti-Racism Ads Draw Mixed Reactions
In January, a group of residents in Duluth, Minn., launched an anti-racism effort called the Un-Fair Campaign. They created ads, posters and billboards aimed to raise awareness about racial injustice and asking white people to recognize institutional racism.
The posters have prompted thoughtful discussion in some circles and backlash in others.
The organizers are also planning other events — a series of discussion, speeches and films, around the city.
Duluth mayor Don Ness, who endorsed the campaign, talks with NPR's Neal Conan about the mixed reactions.
