Date: 10/24/2013

Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Griggs Center Duluth,Kirby Student Center (KSC)

Cost: Free

Description:

Talking about race and racism can be challenging for many people. It can be tempting to keep our discussions at a surface level, so as to avoid hurt, anger, shame and guilt. But open and honest discussions on race, as well as basic history and context that are often neglected in the discussions, are necessary for us to address the racial inequities that continue to challenge our personal relationships, institutions, and society. 

Facilitating this workshop will be Anne Phibbs from the Office of Equity and Diversity, Twin Cities Campus
