Learn about redlining through a Color-byNumbers map based on the infamous examples used by the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation in the late 1930s. Take a “Nope or Nice” quiz that tests their knowledge of which commonly used words have racist roots or are offensive to some groups. And try their hands at questions from the state of Alabama’s 1965 Literacy Test (miss more than 7 of 68 questions and no voting  for  you!). Neither a deep dive into critical race theory nor a scholarly tome on antiracism,  Do the Work!  is something  more: an enormously clever and enlightening guide meant to be picked up, read, played with, shared, and absorbed.
