Join Shay Stewart-Bouley and Debby Irving (author of Waking Up White) for an intimate, honest, cross-racial conversation about current racial dynamics. Inspired by current events (in their own lives and in the larger world), these two powerful women will engage in conversation before moving into larger community dialogue with the audience. Shay and Debby will explore the common fears and pitfalls of cross-racial conversation that keep people isolated in their own racial groups, at the expense of personal, professional, and societal growth.
Most importantly, Shay and Debby will model how to stay in dialogue– and relationship– even when tension, disagreement, or misunderstanding arise. The ability to work through such pitfalls in cross-racial conversation is critical to forming strong anti-racist community. Opportunities for deepening understandings and reflecting on limitations in cross-racial dialogue seldom arise. Join us for this unique and powerful conversation and deepen your ability to engage in this critical work.
Reminder: This is a virtual event and a fundraiser for Community Change Inc. All ticket sales go to the work of Community Change Inc. Shay and Debbie are offering their labor free of charge.
