Mindful of Race 101
Racism remains one of the most rooted and painful impasses of our time. The scars and history of racism impacts all of us, without exception. It impacts our capacity to genuinely love, and it blinds us to our humanity.
Racism is fed through unawareness, oppressive systems, and the misuse of power. Deepening our understanding of how we have been conditioned to think and react is at the root of racial harm and racial healing. We each must ask ourselves:
Why are matters of race still matters of concern throughout the world?
And what does this have to do with me?
This course offers an introduction to the Mindful of Race framework using the Rubik to illustrate six concepts in three intersecting pairs. These concepts support an investigation of our racial habits of mind that influence how we show up in the world.
