The Lighter Side of Race

Frequently, when someone mentions the word race, the conversation centers on the experiences and challenges of those who are black. While this examination is crucial, the voices of other people-of-color who may be of Asian, Latinx, Indigenous, Middle Eastern, or mixed-race descent are also in need of being heard. Navigating our gender in a society that ascribes to a two-gender system and still contemplates race most often as a black/white issue can leave us on the sidelines saying: “Well, that’s not my experience.” Let’s share our experiences with each other and create the dialogue we strain to hear.

Note: This conversation will be centered on the experiences of people-of-color but is open to all who wish to listen, learn, and grow.
