Cracking the Code: The System of Racial Inequality

A three part series on the following Sundays at 11:30 am

 July 16th • July 23th • July 30th

Join Dr. Sarah Booth Riss for a Year of Renewal learning experience. She will facilitate a series of three interactive sessions based on the video Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity from 11:30-12:30 on the following Sundays: July 16, July 23, and July 30.  This video, portrays the complex interplay between the personal, institutional and systemic factors involved in racial inequality in the US.  These sessions will help the participants pull the lens back so we can see the landscape of racialization and how we as individuals are shaped by it. Sarah will facilitate engaging conversations in a safe and supportive environment. Participants will Talk-Heal-Change together. Sarah is a retired Superintendent of the Webster Groves School District.  Currently she is a member of the Education Equity Consultants firm. She founded the Alliance for Interracial Dignity, a Webster-based group that uses Talk-Heal-Change to address interracial issues.  She is an extremely knowledgeable and engaging speaker and an expert in methods of adult education.  Her presentation promises to be a wonderful interactive experience that fits right in with our Year of Renewal goals
