You are warmly invited to attend the Race Unity Circle of Dutchess County’s Black History Month Commemoration.  Every year at this time, we host a series of structured conversations about Racism using the film series “Race – The Power of an Illusion” and Race Amity – America’s Other Tradition.”  Each conversation is hosted by two Race Unity Circle members, working to increase understanding and grow their capacity to be catalysts for change.

If you have already begun the work of dismantling myths about Race, be sure to invite the “uninitiated.” to join us, e.g., that uncle, cousin, spouse, colleague, brother, congregant, who asks: 

  • Are black and brown people genetically predisposed to the Coronavirus?” “
  • Why don’t they pull themselves up by their bootstraps?
  • Our neighborhoods are segregated because people choose to live with people who are like them, no?
  • I’m so sorry you are experiencing microaggressions; I can’t believe that still happens in 2021!  It makes me so sad.
  • Etc. . .
