The Dialogue on Race continues: Thursday, Oct. 28 at WWC
FROM DIALOGUE ON RACE organizers
The public is invited to participate in a four-week Dialogue on Race, hosted by Warren Wilson College, beginning on Thursday, October 28. The sessions will be held on Thursdays from 6 to 8 pm at Jensen Hall (Room 302) on the college campus on Oct. 28, and Nov. 4, 11, and 18.
“A frank and open dialogue about race and racism in our society’s institutions,” led by trained facilitators, will explore the following issues:
• Is racism still a problem today?
• How do racial disparities affect you, regardless of your ethnicity?
• What is “white privilege”?
• What can you personally do to eliminate racism?
There is no charge for the Dialogue on Race, but participants are urged to pre-register by contacting Roberta Madden at Robertamadden@yahoo.com
or Gerald Spates at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The planners stressed that everyone is welcome, including townspeople, as well as Warren Wilson students, faculty, and staff.
The Dialogue on Race is sponsored by Building Bridges of Asheville and the Swannanoa Valley Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Corporation.
