Celebrating March's Women's History Month, the Concord Carlisle High School Intersections Club discusses feminism and the club members' experiences with gender biases in their lives.
The latest program from Concord Carlisle High School's Intersections Club takes a look at culture loss. When people and families immigrate to the United States--or any country, really--they integrate into a new culture.

What are the implications of that cultural loss?
Over the past few years, the term "codeswitching" has risen in popularity. As members of CCHS's Intersections Club define it in their latest episode of "Cue The Culture", codeswitching is the practice of people of color changing their vernacular as they move between different communities. Episode 6 looks at how codeswitching impacts individuals' identities and how it impacts students of color psychologically.
Intersections talks with CCHS teachers Ms.Guiney, Ms.McCaffrey-Clark and and Madame Smith, about different ways to be active in our community, personal encounters with privilege, and ensuring activism is inclusive.
