Code-Switching

Special | 56m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

Code-Switching looks at how the inability to switch from informal speech to a more formal type of speech can impact where you work and what you earn. The documentary does not imply that Standard English should be spoken at all times - but it does address the pitfalls of only being able to speak informally in a society that expects formal speech in certain environments.
