The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) has announced that "Vital Conversations: An Interactive Video Series on Today's Realities of Race and Racism" will premiere Wednesday, at 9 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Oct. 28, at gcorr.org.
Vital conversations are a direct connection between the three areas of GCORR's ministry model – institutional equity, vital conversations and intercultural competency –-and the lived experiences of people around the world. Through these conversations, you are invited to engage in relevant and real conversations about the things that divide and challenge us to live authentically in relationship with one another among our differences.
The series will begin with anti-racist educator Dr. Robin DiAngelo's "Misunderstanding of Racism." DiAngelo is an associate professor of education at Westfield State University, the director of Equity for Senior Services in Seattle/King County and the author of "What Does it Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy." Click here for more about DiAngelo.
In the coming months, GCORR will host more live videos with speakers such as Dr. Miguel De La Torre, Dr. David Anderson Hooker, Dr. Pamela Lightsey and others.
