It's been decades since the groundbreaking Civil Rights Act was passed back in the sixties, yet while we're always willing to talk about the positive steps we've taken to address racial inequality, we're not quite as willing to talk about the ways in which we continue to fall short. No problem can be solved without first acknowledging that it exists and then coming to a shared commitment to address it. This study will help break the ice so a conversation of substance can take place and it also serves as an excellent primer for the six remaining studies in "The Racism Study Pack." Leaders will be given tools such as ground rules for discussion, specific questions to guide the conversation, and an understanding of what one might expect when leading a group through in-depth discussions of racism. The Participant Handout clearly and succinctly identifies road blocks to productive discussions about race, racism, and inequality in our lives.
