Dialogue on Race @ Red Shoes

Mondays January 18-February 29 12-2 pm (No class on February 8) @ Red Shoes

On Martin Luther King Day, we will begin the Dialogue, an opportunity for people of diverse backgrounds to speak frankly and safely about racial issues, learning from each other about the impact of prejudice and institutional racism. The Dialogue recognizes that racism is not an “us versus them” issue. Racism is an institutional construct built into our system; much of it exists unintentionally and indirectly. However, as long as racism exists, our institutions operate to the advantage of one race over another.

Each week, participants read short, pre-assigned articles to prepare for discussions led by trained facilitators. Dialogue on Race Louisiana is a non-profit whose core program is the Dialogue on Race: Original Series. It provides a safe space for honest discussion on the issue of racism. It's an important step in a journey toward enlightenment, understanding and the elimination of racism from our society. $25
