The OED defines it as ‘originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice’, while Urban defines it as ‘being woke means being aware… knowing what’s going on in the community (related to racism and social injustice)’. Like most street ***, ‘woke’ can trace its roots back hundreds of years.
