About the event
How did racism emerge as a such a pervasive social structure in the U.S.? What is the reality of "race"? Why do so many people still have erroneous beliefs about race's influence on our destinies? It's a question many of us have asked at one time or another, and it has a clear answer.
Race is a social construct, a tool for oppression. In short, racism is real, but race is not. Race also has a definitive origin story, and one that every anti-racist or social justice activist should know. Join this training to learn a brief history of racial classification in the U.S., and how it influences our mistaken perception of race today, and its implications for anti-racist work in the future.
