Understanding Racism in the US

Author Avianca Bouchedid, Written Sep 13, 2016


Join our community course on “Understanding Racism in the US and Working toward Racial Justice” to learn, discuss, and take action!

We will be meeting at The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Somerset Hills’ Fellowship Hall. 

We will be asking questions like: What is race, and how can we address common misperceptions about race?  What is systemic racism in the US? What can I do to dismantle racism?

Meetings will be monthly, the first Tuesday of the month, 7-9pm, from October to April. It’s free and open to the public. To register email UUCSH@UUCSH.ORG. Participants will be asked to commit to the entire course and to read from the textbook Race: Are We So Different (available at bookstores and online for less than $25). 

The course will be facilitated by Dr. Karen Gaffney, an English Professor at Raritan Valley Community College. She examines race, systemic racism, and racial justice in her teaching at RVCC, at conferences around the country, IN HER BLOG, and in the community with the Hunterdon County Anti-Racism Coalition, the Meta Theatre Company, and the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women.

Sponsored by the Anti-Racism Coalition of Hunterdon County and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Somerset Hills.
