A Public Event and Pop-Up Course for Spring 2021
Honest dialogue about race and racism is difficult. We can do this work and must if we expect to live in a world that is just, safe, and inclusive for all people.
Developing racial literacy is about detecting, naming, opposing, and replacing racism. When we commit to speaking truthfully about race, we will experience vulnerability. If we can remain in this space, the potential for growth also exists. History and culture, and community and policing are core themes we will address. In reflecting on each topic, we will examine the intersectionality of race with gender, sexuality, class, and status.
Global citizenship relies on racial literacy. Let’s do this work together.
