IS THIS NECESSARY?
YES, because of Structural Racism: It ALL must FALL!!!
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss this unfolding phenomenon in America. Our panel of community activists and thinkers will explore the methodology relating to the deconstruction of structural racism.
Structural Racism is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with “whiteness” and disadvantages associated with “color” to endure and adapt over time. Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead, it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.
