UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — A group of friends started an Instagram page called "True Colors of Columbia" that has now become a space for Black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) to anonymously share their experiences with racism at the prestigious school.

Lauren Gloster, a co-administrator of the page, spoke with Betty Nguyen about the project and what the group hopes to achieve by exposing injustices at schools.
