Race and Ethnicity: Part 1 of a Special Three-Part Series
Organizer: Living Room Conversations
In this series of three conversations, participants explore the complexities of the concepts of Race, Ethnicity, and their impacts on people from all walks of life. We will cover new questions from the three Race & Ethnicity conversation guides found here. Some of these questions include:
- What qualifications do you use to determine a person's race?
- Were conversations about race a part of your upbringing? If so, how was the subject approached? How did people around you talk about other races?
- Have you ever claimed an ethnicity that wasn't yours or that wasn't visibly yours in order to "pass," or have privilege?
- How have race and ethnicity functioned differently in your life, if they have?
