  • Host Department: Theme Semester
  • Date: 03/20/2013
  • Time: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

  • Location: Eastern Michigan University Student Center - Room 352

  • Description:

    Each of us has lived lives rich with experiences which shape how we view the world and the people in it.  Some of our beliefs are conscious, and others are unconscious.  Some are "nice," others are not so "nice."  How do individual biases intersect with racism systematically?  Join us for an opportunity of deep introspection and community building.  Bring an open mind, a friend, and your voice!

    The same agenda will be offered on Tuesday, March 19 from 6:00-9:00 PM at EMU's Student Center, Room 300.

    This event is co-sponsored by the Easter Michigan University Office of Urban, Community, and International Outreach and the U-M National Center for Institutional Diversity.  It is free and open to the public.

    Refreshments will be served.  RSVPs are not required but are appreciated so we can plan appropriately.  RSVP to sablanks@umich.edu.
