Race: Is It An Ethnic Notion?


Drawing on our nation's racialized past Peter Reineke will lead us through a viewing of historical artifacts as a means to understand modern American society in the context of our history and its impact on our history today. Using these touch points, Peter will demonstrate the significance of our national ethnographic history and how it impacts our current thinking as well as that of our children, whether we know it or not. Taking this information we will explore conversations and lessons that we can pass along to youth of color as well as their white peers to help them understand and fight against the pervasive power of racism and radicalized stereotyping.

This workshop is appropriate for both transracial and same race adopters.
