Racism in America can take many forms, some overt and some harder to measure. Racial inequalities are found in all wealth and income levels, education, health care, civil rights, and many other areas. Mediator Tonya Covington leads this class, asking and answering questions such as: What is racism? Who is and who isn’t a racist? How do you become an ally? Where do we go from here? Join us for a lively discussion in a safe place.
