Watts Street Baptist Church will cosponsor Racial Equity Institute’s Groundwater workshop 9 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, April 21. The workshop explores racial inequality in the US. It will be at Carolina Friends School.
Join the Watts Street community and others to explore how race pervades life in the United States in ways that are often taken for granted but that have devastating impacts on our nation’s most marginalized populations. Carolina Friends School, Duke School, Durham’s Shambhala Center and WSBC have joined with Organizing Against Racism (OAR Durham) to sponsor for the event.
In this lively and participatory three-hour introduction to racial equity, the Greensboro-based Racial Equity Institute (REI) presenters use stories and data to illustrate a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant.
Registration is free, but donations are suggested. Register on line at http://www.oaralliance.org/schedule/ groundwater with a suggested sliding scale donation of $15. Coffee and snacks will be provided, as will child care.
