Now a story about two UNC students who formed an unusual friendship over the controversial topic of race.
Anna Bennett is a white student who feels passionate about radically educating the white community about privilege and hierarchy. Vanessa Agunobi is a black student who doesn’t agree with some of the radical forms of racial empowerment. But the two found themselves roommates – and later best friends.
