In light of discussions we have had at this blog, I offer some ideas about creating better understanding.
KUOW has had a great series called Black in Seattle. On Wednesday, Nov. 13, they are having an event, Black in Seattle: Continuing the Conversation at Washington Hall at 153 14th Avenue at 6 pm. Free and open to the public.
The group, School's Out Washington is offering two caucuses - one for white people and one for people of color on Tuesday, November 19th from 10 am to noon. Lunch is provided.
The two articles they recommend are:
White Caucus - “Nothing to add: A Challenge to White Silence in Racial Discussions”
People of Color - “Racial Microaggressions in Everyday Life”
Space is limited. Please RSVP to Doree Desberg via e-mail or at 206.336.6916.
Funding by the City of Seattle Office of Civil Rights, Race and Social Justice Initiative, and Structural Racism Technical Assistance Fund. Space donated by Boys&Girls Club of King County/Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse and Teen Center at Rainier Vista.
This is offered as information to our readers.
