The Easiest Conversation on Race

 

Is it ever easy to discuss race?

 

What if we said it can be? 

 

Dar Mayweather’s "Easiest Conversation On Race" guides participants toward a deeper, more-universal knowledge base of race and its application to individuals and groups within today’s society. We all live with a racial identity, at the same time, most use outdated concepts and definitions of race. Through open dialogue, participants are able to develop greater awareness, appreciation, and respect for others and create more inclusive communities on campus. This program can be customized for all levels and will support those struggling to open meaningful racial conversations or those currently developing strategies around complex racial issues.
