Connections: White People Look at Race and Racism
Often when we talk about race, we hear from scholars, professors, people trained to talk about it. And that is certainly helpful.
On Wednesday night, a pair of white Rochesterians will host a discussion that aims to "assist us white folks free ourselves from the awkwardness we often encounter around the topic." The presentation is called "Exploring the Territory: White People Look at Race and Racism." It will be held at Starbridge Inc. at 1650 South Avenue in Rochester from 7-9 p.m. (to register, call 585-224-7238). We discuss what it's all about. Our guests:
- April Staropoli, facilitator of "Exploring the Territory"
- Frank Staropoli, facilitator of "Exploring the Territory"
- Steve Jarose, director of the Rochester chapter of the National Coalition Building Institute
- Rev. Myra Brown, Spiritus Christi Church, and an anti-racism trainer
