Race: The Power of an Illusion

Friday, September 17, 2021
9:00 am3:40 pm
Via Zoom

You are invited to participate in this exciting training, based on the popular PBS television series by the same name. This all-day training will involve watching segments of this three-part series investigation of race in society, science and history. The film tackles the theory of race by subverting the idea of race as biology, tracing the idea to its origin in the 19th century. After viewing each film segment, the group will discuss how the concept of race has influenced our social/governmental institutions and impacted our personal lives. The group will then explore the ways in which issues of inequality and social injustice continue to challenge us fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement.
