First Professor A.J. Williams-Myers will talk about the History of Racism then the Panelists Peter Heymann, Break Through Career and Life Coach, ENJAN member and Undoing Racism presenter, along with Tracy Givens-Hunter, former Southern Dutchess NAACP Criminal Justice Chair, Board Member ACLU of Lower Westchester, and Undoing Racism presenter, will lead an interactive discussion with the audience. Minister Rita Worthington of New Progressive Baptist Church, known to many as speaking out against the unequal treatment of black youth, will be the moderator.

The intent of part One B of the forum is to continue to raise awareness of what white privilege and institutional racism are and show how they affect us all. Again please look at Chapter Six of Michelle Alexander’s pioneering bestseller, The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, will serve as a focal point of the discussion. “Perhaps the time has come to give up on racial bribes and begin an honest conversation about race in America. The topic of conversation should be how us can include all of us”, p. 257.
