Race: The Power of an Illusion

COMING SOON TO UUCR AND OUR COMMUNITY

Thursdays, Jan 16, Jan 30, and Feb 13, all at 6:30 p.m., at UUCR – “Is Race for Real?”
Over the course of four weeks, we will screen a three-part documentary (Race: The Power of an Illusion), each screening preceded and followed by discussion, starting on Jan 16 and continuing every other Thursday until Feb 13. We all know that people look different. Anyone can tell a Czech from a Chinese person.  But are these differences “racial”? What does race mean? There is less — and more — to race than meets the eye.  Race is not biological, but racism is very real. Join us for a viewing and discussion of this piercing, science-based and award-winning documentary. Each session is expected to be about 2 hours – 1 hour video and pre- and post-video discussion.
