To discuss the various concepts of race and how our differences can have both negative and positive impacts in our lives, the American Anthropological Association has put together a tour called Understanding Race Project Community Conversation.
This on-campus event, called Biases: Conscious and Unconscious, will take place Tuesday in Eastern Michigan University’s Student Center room 300 from 6-9 p.m.
The same program will be offered again on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in room 352 of the Student Center. Both events are free and open to the public, and a meal will be provided.
The event will promote a small group discussion about biases and race. The discussion will be hosted by the Office of Urban, Community and International Outreach of EMU’s College of Education.
Regina George, the director of the newly established office, said, “There will be activities to encourage reflection, awareness and sharing as one feels comfortable.”
These conversations have been taking place every month at different venues across Washtenaw County for over a year.
“There are many events ongoing related to the project that would be of interest to students,” George said.
The event will be facilitated by EMU graduate students who have an interest in and experience with issues of bias and racism.
“We hope to promote conversations between EMU students, staff and local community members about issues important to them,” George said. “We hope these conversations will continue beyond next week.”
