This four session learning series is delivered virtually over four consecutive weeks. Each week, there is required pre-work and a two hour live group discussion.


What are the goals of the learning series?

  • Assist participants in understanding the complexity, and the simplicity, of racism using critical thinking, self-reflection, and communication.

  • Connect this to an understanding of other systems of oppression.

  • Create a safe, healing learning environment for participants to learn, grow, and explore racism in our society, and in ourselves.

  • Begin to develop implementable strategies to address/repair the harm racism has caused.

  • Introduce the Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation and offer a path forward.


Participant Commitments

  • To do all pre-work before attending class.

  • To attend all sessions in their entirety (if there is a problem, let us know).

  • To being fully present and engaged in class.

  • To take responsibility for your learning.


All these commitments are essential to your learning, the group process, and the success of this program.

What's the cost?

$100. We hope that you will consider making a donation via Eventbrite registration of $100 to help cover the costs of the learning series. If this creates financial hardship, feel free to donate an amount that is appropriate for you—no one will be turned away due to inability to pay. Likewise, if you’d like to donate a bit more to help cover the cost of another participant, we would be very grateful.


What should I expect?

  • Estimated time commitment for the entire series including the readings and videos is approximately 14 hours.

  • The learning series provides an introduction to the Dock C. Bracy Center’s understanding and approach to eradicating racism.

  • Sessions include videos, articles, small group discussions and short presentations designed with adult learning concepts.

  • Participants are expected to attend all four sessions of the learning series—four consecutive weeks, two hour live group discussions and pre-work.

  • Each session includes pre-work, to be completed in advance of the session, which provides participants a common experience to enhance small group discussions and complements the Center’s presentations.

  • Following completion of the learning series participants will have the opportunity to continue their learning through the Finding Your Voice Program.
