October 2022 – Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward

Updated: Sep 14

This is not a transaction.

This requires time and work.

This is the start of a journey, not the end.

Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward is a learning series of four two-hour sessions with the goal of assisting individuals to eradicate racism.


Join us Thursday, October 20th at 12pm Eastern Standard Time for our first of four two-hour learning sessions.

Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward


What are the goals of the learning series?

  • Participants have the opportunity for dialogue about the complexity of racism in a safe learning environment with other concerned people.

  • Participants understand the Center’s approach to eradicating racism.

  • Participants become part of the Center’s Finding Your Voice Program.

What should a participant expect?

  • The Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward learning series with a suggested donation of $100*.

  • Estimated time commitment for the entire series including the readings and videos (pre-work for each session) is approximately 16 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 2-hour sessions, one evening weekly for four consecutive weeks.

  • Each session includes an introduction packet, 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.
