Description/Abstract of your Event: 

This panel of diverse ages and backgrounds attempts to incite a conversation with the audience about Institutional racism, colorism and internal racism and its practices for social mobilization in America. We will share our knowledge by citing theories, authors, movements but more importantly by sharing our stories, the untold stories of our communities, and our ancestors. Our hope is to bring understanding and cultural sensitivity to issues in our communities that appear contradictory to “others”. Also, we hope that we can as a collective develop solutions that we can bring back from this necessary conversation to our communities of color.
