Workshop One: Opening the Door: Foundations
In this foundational workshop, we will discuss the language of race and racism, the origins of race, the history of race here at UR, and the position of our self in society. Participants will review contemporary language, and gain understanding of its importance as part of the struggle for equity and when discussing race and racism. Participants will also leave with an overview of power dynamics as interwoven with the history of race and racism in the US and on campus. Finally, participants will develop a growing sense of how who we are as people -- our identities -- impact how we interact with each other.
