Event description

Description

Authors Mark Tschaepe and Ronald Goodwin will discuss their new book, The Mask of Microaggressions: Studies of Racism in the US, on Wednesday, October 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Center for the Healing of Racism, 3412 Crawford St., Houston, 77004. Tschaepe and Goodwin, assistant professors at Prairie View A&M University, will also sign copies of books purchased at the event.

Microaggressions are commonly defined as brief, everyday exchanges that send denigrating messages to certain individuals because of their race or ethnicity. It is thought that they often occur below the level of awareness of well-intentioned members of the dominant culture. Whether intentional or unintentional, microaggressions communicate hostile, derogatory or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.

The event is free and open to the public (first 50 to RSVP). Registration required by emailing cfhr1@juno.com or calling (713) 520-8226. Free parking is available at Houston Community College lot #9. Website: http://www.centerhealingracism.org/
