Photos: MFEE workshops racial stress, racial literacy
The splash page on the Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence website for the new workshop presented on Sunday, March 1 in St. Luke's Episcopal Church, "America to Me Real Talk," asks
Race. Conversation. Honesty. Action.
We Montclairians pride ourselves in valuing diversity and promoting racial integration.
• But how racially literate are we?
• Have we grown complacent about racism in Montclair?
• Are our past successes getting in the way of real change to address persistent racial inequality in our town?"
The first in a quintet of programs, a "community watch club," presented "..kinda like a...book club," according to the MFEE offers a group of trained leaders for the process, briefing the audience, screening film clips and videos, including one about a Chicago high school similar to MHS, to open the conversation about insidious racial bias, with a common language, racial literacy.
