Whiteness and Racism Discussions (sponsored by the Toward Justice Group) Sundays (November 8-29th) 11:30am -12:45pm. Facilitated by Lynn Hunt, Credentialed Religious Educator and Dan Livengood, Member of Toward Justice Group. One of the ways that racism affects us is by shaping our identity (and this is true for whites and People of Color). This class, using a variety of current resources, is for people interested in understanding the development of whiteness and/or transforming their whiteness through understanding the complex history of white supremacy of over four hundred years in the United States, and the impact it has on us as individuals and the society as a whole. The curriculum includes sections on: Historical Grounding (the Racialization of Slavery); Implicit Bias and White Privilege; Emotional Lives of White People; and The Making of Ferguson and the Ferguson Commission Report.
