Note: the acronym BIPOC used in this piece means “Black, Indigenous, Persons Of Color.” It’s been increasingly used in place of “Persons of Color” as a way to acknowledge that Black persons (through slavery and its aftermath) and Indigenous persons (through land theft and genocidal policies) have uniquely painful relationships to the impact of racism on U.S. history.
