Vital Conversations on Race Set for Oct. 28
|The United Methodist Church's General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) will premiere Vital Conversations: An Interactive Video Series on Today's Realities of Race and Racism, at 9 p.m., Wednesday, October 28 on GCORR.org. You're invited to join in.
Vital conversations are a direct connection between the three areas of GCORR's Ministry Model--institutional equity, vital conversations, and intercultural competency--and the lived experiences of people around the world. Through these conversations, you are invited to engage in relevant and real conversations about the things that divide and challenge us to live authentically in relationship with one another among our differences.
The series will begin with anti-racist educator Dr. Robin DiAngelo's "Misunderstanding of Racism." Dr. DiAngelo is an associate professor of education at Westfield State University; the director of Equity for Senior Services in Seattle/King County; and the author of What Does it Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy. You can read more about Dr. DiAngelo here.
In the coming months, GCORR will host more live videos with speakers like Dr. Miguel De La Torre, Dr. David Anderson Hooker, Dr. Pamela Lightsey, and many more!
