Won't you please join us!.
Finding a Language to Talk about Race
It can be very difficult to discuss a topic when you do not know the terms and a vocabulary associated with it. Many Americans are missing a robust vocabulary about race and equity. This leads to extreme discomfort in talking about race, an avoidance of such conversations, and a very limited ability to understand and recognize its relevance and impact. It has been said that Eskimos have over 50 words to describe snow. But if you grow up in a warm climate your snow vocabulary will be quite limited by comparison, as will your ability to see variations.
The American culture has its roots in using race and separation to maintain power and make political decisions. Our April discussion will explore a wide variety of terms that will help us be “on the same page” and be more informed when we have discussions about racial equity
