Dominic Inouye: 12×16 and the messy process of unlearning

Much of the childhood experience emphasizes learning, but the challenge is to unlearn ingrained ideas. Inspired by a great American novel, this talk explores a process for unlearning debilitating concepts of racism, schooling, fitness, space, and even how to perceive Milwaukee itself.
