Overcoming Racism: A Radical Approach

Is racial conflict inevitable in a multi-racial society? Or is it the product of social and economic conditions—past and present—that can be understood and reversed?

This two-part class will use works by writers of color, feminists and radicals to explore these questions and the important leadership role of people of color in all the social justice movements. The challenges and rewards of organizing across color lines as well as various political approaches to accomplishing this will be discussed.

Tonight's discussion focuses on "Has racism always existed? The truth can set us free"--The origins of racist ideology in the rise of capitalism and the desire for cheap labor and "free" land--all of which led to Black enslavement and the genocide of the indigenous people of the Americas.

$2 donation requested per session. Reading materials available at a nominal cost.

Snacks available at 6:30pm for a $6 donation.

Public class runs on Tuesdays, March 13-May 8 (no meeting on May 1).
