You are invited to participate in our next Racial Trustbuilding training session. We look forward to your participation in the community discussion on the topic of Race, Reconciliation and Responsibility.

A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Our training will be facilitated by Hope In The Cities, a Richmond, VA based organization that has helped transform Richmond, VA, from a symbol of racial division to a model for reconciliation.

Please RSVP, so we will have an accurate count for meals and materials. If you have any questions, please feel free to send an email to hello@racialtrustbuilding.org.

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
