A tacit code of silence on matters of race perpetuates divisions. Are We Different? gives voice to black students as they articulate issues of race, racism and race relations. It uncovers subjects that are generally taboo or difficult to express. The discussion ranges from whether stylistic differences between whites and blacks are superficial or profound to the causes and nature of anger and frustration in the black community. The students talk about black culture with its special speech patterns and gestures that sets it apart. They talk about black spirituality and energy.
