Guided by Victor Lee Lewis and Patti Digh
A 5-week Intensive Online Course, offered twice on the same day each week, allowing you to choose the afternoon or the evening cohort. See links below to register for either the afternoon or the evening cohort.
The year 2020, amidst the pervasive collective trauma of the Covid-19 pandemic, was a year of shattering racial violence, including the murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmad Arberry, and George Floyd. It was also a year of unprecedented mobilization in the BLM movement and allied movements against racist violence. All over the U.S., everyday people can see that something in the fabric of the American culture is broken, and a lot of people want to help mend it. We yearn for new, more fruitful ways of confronting the American dilemma of race. Hard Conversations: A Deep Dive into Racism and its Undoing is a crash-course on what we need to know and remember to make sense of the racialized social tensions that are rocking society right now.
Victor Lee Lewis and Patti Digh invite you to join their 5-week intensive course. Together they guide and facilitate an online learning community to develop the knowledge and skills for understanding and undoing racism.
More than 5,000 people on 5 continents, from diverse race, class and cultural backgrounds have joined our learning communities. They include activists, educators, clergy, high school students, retirees, military officers, college professors, doctors and nurses, and other everyday people who have taken these intensive learning journeys with us, since Patti called the first Hard Conversations cohort in response to the Charleston Church Massacre of 2015. Over this time we have continually updated and refined the courses to deliver a learning experience that is intellectually challenging, deeply collaborative, socially supportive, fiercely honest, and inspiring.
*Week 1: Introduction, Creating our Learning Community
*Week 2: Institutional and Structural Racism: Myths and Facts
*Week 3: On White Privilege and “White Fragility: The use and abuse of ideas
*Week 4: On Color Blindness, Microaggressions, and Cultural Appropriation
