A Dialog on Race and Ethnicity #racial #discussion #maryland #princegeorges

October 7, 2012

In the ADORE forum we discuss race relations and the American way of life. We explore our feelings on racial issues in the hope of learning more about others and ourselves. All are welcome – invite your friends.

Our next forum is Friday, October 12, 2012. Optional potluck at 6:30 pm and the discussion begins at 7:30 pm.
The agenda this month includes:

  • Open discussion allowing participants to share their race-awareness encounters (Events, issues, and personal activities that made them aware of their own racial identity)
  • The role of race, ethnicity, and gender in our current political environment.
  • These topics may include: Congressional Gridlock, Voter I.D. laws, Immigration laws, Content and tone of political candidate election advertising, etc.
  • The issuance of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln in September 1862; the politics then and now.
  • Completion of chart/graph showing events between the years 2000-2010 that tended to (a) re-enforce racist notions or (b) resist racist notions.
