A Day of Racial Reckoning & Healing

November 13 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Sol Center, Race Ed SA and SAAACAM join forces to present a morning of Conscious Conversations for the whole family. Workshops, discussions and activities explore the topics of:

  • Stereotyping – to believe unfairly that all people or things with a particular characteristic are the same
  • Diasporic Education – diaspora refers to situations when Indigenous peoples, immigrants, and emigrants are forced to leave or voluntarily leave their tribes, native lands, territories, communities, or countries due to such reasons as imperialism, colonialism, political persecution, economic exploitation, trade, or labor migrations. While people in diaspora might not maintain strong ties with their homelands or native lands, they lack full integration into the host lands.
  • Institutional Racism – also known as systemic racism, is a term that refers to a form of racism that is embedded in the laws and regulations of a society or an organization. It manifests as discrimination in areas such as criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, education, and political representation.

A host of presenters specializing in these topics will present these topics in age appropriate settings.  Ages all be divided by: pre-kindergarten, elementary, middle school, high school, college and adults.  Presenters include:

  • Alex Bailey, Founder of Black Outside
  • Sallie Frederick. Retired School Administrator
  • Dr. Sunita Punjabi, Braincoach LLC
  • Race Ed SA Founders: Abhived Pulapaka and Avery Neale
  • Torry Sledge, Tutors 4 U
  • Bishop Trevor Alexander. University of the Incarnate Word
  • Dr. Doshie Piper. University of the Incarnate Word
  • Pastor Michael Steve Brown, True Vision Church

 

Snacks will be served.  (Masks are required.) ADMISSION IS FREE!  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
