The Structure of Racism
October 10, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Please join the Dominican Sisters of Houston and the Center for the Healing of Racism on Saturday, October 10, 2020, 1-3 PM, for “The Structure of Racism,” a Zoom presentation examining the structural and psychological causes and consequences of prejudice and discrimination. The workshop will be led by Dr. Craig Oettinger who will discuss these persistent patterns and — with the help of the audience — explore how change is possible.
Dr. Oettinger earned a PhD from Brown University in 1978. His dissertation, “The Politics of Excluded Groups,” focused on changing Black political strategies, White response, and Black influence in American cities. As a high school student in Connecticut, he experienced anti-Semitism, which led him to join a racial justice committee, an involvement that led to many years as an activist for racial justice. He taught sociology at the University of Houston, Clear Lake for 35 years.
