Join the Hamline University NCORE Team for a day-long exploration of the intersection between race and socio-economic class, including: (1) the history and evolution of race and class in relation to discrimination, oppression and resistance against the backdrop of U.S. nationhood; (2) Current-day images, practices and experiences of race and class including changing demographics and racial categorization and gaps in wealth, education, poverty, and incarceration; and (3) the individual, institutional and systemic ways racism and classism are experienced, as well as the interventions needed by individuals, institutions and society at large.
Participants will have opportunities in both large group and small group activities to: think about their own assumptions, experiences and identities; engage in self-reflection and conversation with others about race and class; and learn strategies for resisting and interrupting systems of oppression. Additionally, the mini-conference features Georgetown University Law Professor Peter Edelman, author of So Rich, So Poor: Why It’s So Hard To End Poverty in America.
