Real Talk: A Dialogue about Internalized Racism

Thursday, September 26

4:15 p.m. | Dwight Lounge

Conversations about race in the U.S. mostly focus on race relations between white communities & people of color. However, people of color are also prone to internalize racist messages about their own community, and & other races/ethnicities/people of color. This conversation allows people of color to come together & examine how we may have accepted racist attitudes towards other racial groups & our own racial/ethnic communities, & move towards healing & mutual respect.

In order to create a safe space, this program is open to people of color only.

A similar conversation for white students, faculty & staff is planned for the spring semester, followed by a third conversation that will be open to all campus.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
