“Reel” Talk Film Series: “Race: The Power of an Illusion”
Jun 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us to view and discuss “Race: The Power of an Illusion”, the 3-part series which provides strong background information about how we got to where we are today regarding “race” in this country.

Jun 24: The Difference Between Us: This episode looks at several scientific discoveries that illustrate why humans cannot be subdivided into races and how there isn’t a single characteristic, trait – or even one gene – that can be used to distinguish all members of one race from all members of another.

July 1: The Story We Tell traces the origins of the racial idea to the European conquest of the New World and to the American slave system. This is an eye-opening tale of how deep social inequalities came to be rationalized as natural – deflecting attention from the social practices and public policies that benefited whites at the expense of others.

July 8: The House We Live In is the first film about race to focus not on individual attitudes and behavior but on the ways our institutions and policies advantage some groups at the expense of others. Its subject is the “unmarked” race: white people. We see how benefits quietly and often invisibly accrue to white people, not necessarily because of merit or hard work, but because of the racialized nature of our laws, courts, customs, and perhaps most pertinently, housing.

This is the first of three showings. Event is Free but registration required. Sign up below!

Let’s Talk @ Lunch at Curt’s Cafe
Jul 10 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Let's Talk at Lunch logoAs we learn to talk THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and deepen our understanding by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants gather, have a cup of coffee or eat lunch, and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. All are welcome!
