“Two Spirits” film screening

The Center for the Healing of Racism invites you to a screening of “Two Spirits,” an award-winning documentary film.  This film, which will be followed by a dialogue, interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female, and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.

“Did They Really Just Say That?”

Have you ever wondered how to respond to that totally inappropriate racial, ethnic or homophobic slur uttered by Aunt So-and-So or Mr. Whatchamacallit when you least expect it?  You gasp; you cringe.  But what do you say and how do you say it?

 
Please join the Center for the Healing of Racism for “Did They Really Just Say That?”, a dialogue with a panel of veteran Center members about how to respond to racist comments made by friends, families and co-workers.
