Unwrapping the Legacy of Race in America - African-Americans have been in the U.S. for 400 years and were given citizenship 250 years ago. Yet are there disparities too large to be explained by the history we have been taught? This workshop will explore the realities behind these disparities and expose some possibly uncomfortable truths about our history. What was left out of the history books? Experiential exercises will bring participants new understandings. This class was offered in the summer of 2018 and Jinny will provide this class again with added materials on white fragility and the local affordable housing crisis. Instructor: Jinny Sullivan
