It's impossible to work toward racial healing without first acknowledging the truth of our history. This module explains the historical context behind the racial inequalities we face today, whether in education, the criminal justice system, the workforce, or even in church life. Though we focus specifically on African slaves and their descendants, this module will open your eyes to patterns of injustice that affect other minority groups across the nation as well.
This course offers a path to look into the painful truths of racial oppression using mindfulness and compassion practices, as well as how to work toward racial justice using meditation, mindfulness, and conversation.
Respecting the current health guidelines, in Fall 2020 this class will be offered in an interactive online format via Zoom.
