Fanning Institute for Leadership Development at the University of Georgia; an Adjunct Professor of Conflict Transformation at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite University; Community Building Advisor for the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation at the University of Mississippi in Oxford; Director of Research and Training for Healing Historical Harms; and Vice- President of Community Building for The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Atlanta Civic Site.

In addition to his work in academia, Dr. Hooker is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Georgia where he represented the Departments of Juvenile Justice, Mental Health Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services, and the Division of Public Health. He later had a private practice focusing on Civil Rights (including prisoner rights and special education). He has worked in Bosnia, Croatia, Cuba, Myanmar (Burma), Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Southern Sudan and Somaliland.

Dr. Hooker is a graduate of Morehouse College (BS), The Emory University School of Law (JD), the Candler School of Theology at Emory University (M Div.), the graduate programs in public health and public administration at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst (MPH & MPA) and a cum laude graduate of Tilburg University (Ph.D.).

Cultural Competence

trustbuilding-mancini.png

Our breakfast series is back! The Trustbuilding Breakfast Series is where we have an opportunity to connect with the members of the Racial Trustbuilding group to discuss important issues affecting Troup County. We are welcoming back Pierluigi Mancini, PhD to discuss "cultural competence." Last year we had a very engaging session  that showed us the importance of accepting and respecting different cultural perspectives.

The concept of cultural competence embraces:

  • Acceptance and respect for differences
  • Continuing self assessment regarding culture
  • Attention to the dynamics of difference
  • Ongoing development of cultural knowledge and resources

Dr. Mancini will host an engaging and thought provoking conversation around culture, bias, and developing culturally competent teams and organizations. More information about Dr. Mancini is available on LinkedIn

Note: Please do not register more than once per email address - you may select up to 2 tickets. If you need more than 2 tickets, please email hello@racialtrustbuilding.org.

Intolerable Burden (Saturday Breakfast)

"The Intolerable Burden" is a film that documents the Carter family of Sunflower County, MS who, in compliance with school policy that supported "freedom of choice," sent thier children to all-white schools prior to full desegregation. The film documents the family's choice and its consequences in rural Mississippi in the late 1960s. Based on the book "Silver Rights," Mae Bertha Carter (the mother) and citizens from their community discuss education in the context of segregation, desecregation and re-segregation. A prominent theme of the movie is the Sunflower County pattern of failing public education for blacks and minorities and the fast track to prison is being replicated throughout the United States.

We will view the movie and discuss it afterwards. Breakfast will be served, please RSVP for headcount
