Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society. Willamette University professor Emily Drew will lead participants in a conversation that explores some of the causes of this continued isolation and the differences of experience between Oregonians of different races—such as institutional racism, white privilege, and unconscious bias.
This program is part of the Oregon Humanities Conversation Project, which brings Oregonians together to talk—across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds—about important issues and ideas. The goal is to connect people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. Join us for a conversation!
