It is a tragic reality that racism is alive and well and even thriving today. At this month's Inspire! event, we unpack the stereotypes, prejudices and (for most of us) the privileges we continue to carry with us - even when we know better - in a safe environment that will challenge us to acknowledge this devastating reality and take concrete steps to create a healthier society for everyone.
To prime the pump, watch this short clip from Tim Wise as he explains The Origin and History of the White Race.
Then join us on January 20 for our Inspire! event with Rik Stevenson and Quincy Williams from Grand Valley State University, Ottawa County Administrator Al Vanderberg,Alice Jasper from LEDA, Eddie Sanders who organized the Muskegon Unity Events, and Roberto Jara from LAUP. Plus, lunch will be provided by Mi Cocina!
