Community Conversation: Biases: Conscious and Unconscious

Tuesday, March 19, 2013
12:00 AM
Eastern Michigan University, Student Center

Same agenda: Wednesday, March 20, 11:00 am - 2 pm, Eastern Michigan University, Student Center

Each of us has lived lives rich with experiences which shape how we view the world and the people in it.  Some of our beliefs are conscious and others are unconscious.  Some are “nice” others are not so “nice.” How do individual biases intersect with racism systemically?  Join us for an opportunity of deep introspection and community building.  Bring an open mind, a friend, and your voice!  Co-sponsored by EMU Office of Urban, Community, and International Outreach.


Community Conversations are offered as part of the Understanding Race Project, an audience engagement effort launched in support of the Race: Are we so different? exhibit at the U-M Museum of Natural History from February 9-May 27, 2013. Building on the 2012 series, the 2013 Community Conversations series will focus on issues of systemic racism, complexities of racial justice, and moving ahead of the “new racism.”  Visit for more information. The Understanding Race Project’s Community Conversations are made possible by support from the National Center for Institutional Diversity.
