Challenging and Identifying Racism in a Colorblind Community
Racism and racist inequality permeate all corners of society, including, of course, our liberal New York bubble. Whether overt, subtle or unseen, racial biases operate in our institutions, our media, and our own actions, language, and unconscious attitudes. If we are gong to dismantle racism, we first must identify it.
This critically-important interactive workshop will engage participants in careful self-reflection about the ways that racism manifests itself in our lives and in communities like our own. We will then brainstorm strategies for responding to these situations and attitudes as they arise.
The program will be facilitated by Rebecca Kelly Golfman, a civil rights attorney, racial justice educator, and artist. She is an Adjunct Professor at Wagner College teaching Race, Art, and Activism, as well as co-founder of the NYC Artists of Color Collective, and a Joker with Theatre of the Oppressed NYC. Previously, in D.C., she served as Associate Counsel with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and as an Adjunct Professor with American University Washington College of Law.
