Event description

Description

Since 1865 and the passage of the 13th Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances toward full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains.

This dialogue explores White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide by Dr. Carol Anderson, with a facilitated discussion and workshop by Dr. Tameka Hobbs and Jordana Hart. We encourage folks to read the book but it is not required to attend or benefit from the discussion.

Lunch will be served. No cost to attend event.

UNITY360 is series of guided discussions that will provide for a safe and structured forum for open dialogue about the ways in which race, racism, and prejudice shape our society and impact our daily interactions.

The dialogue pairs a carefully selected reading, White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide by Dr. Carol Anderson, with a facilitated discussion and workshop designed to identify and deconstruct barriers to inclusion across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic boundaries. Participants will have the opportunity to learn skills and techniques designed to facilitate interactions and create a foundation for empathy and understanding between people of different backgrounds.

The goal of the UNITY360 dialogue is to promote both self-awareness and group awareness of the sometimes-unintended harm of casual racism and bigotry, and provide participants with tools for diffusing and rejecting bigoted language and behaviors when they encounter them, in hopes of improving the quality of social interactions and community life.
