1619: Wokeism & Critical Race Theory with Sharon Kyle & Dick Price, Zoom
Pasadena Village’s 1619 Project discussion group was inspired by the New York Times issue dated August 2019. This is a safe place to talk about the history of racism in America, to understand its origins and its residual impact. The group explores the ideas presented in the 1619 Project but not to follow its teaching curriculum.
Sharon Kyle and Dick Price will lead a discussion about Wokeism and Critical Race Theory. Sharon and Dick have long published the award winning newsletter, LA Progressive, and have been students of race issues for many years. Sharon and Dick are a mixed race couple and have previously spoken to us in a very engaging presentation about what they have learned from their perspective of being a part of that kind of relationship for many years. Click on the link above to read about the presentation and find the video recording. We expect another exciting conversation and we look forward to having you join us.
This is a discussion group not intended as a teaching class. We often suggest articles that have been recommended to us only to initiate discussion, but homework is never required to participate in the discussion. Everybody can engage in the discussions by sharing what they learn from the news as well as what they have experienced in their lives.
All are invited to join us to share your views, and to learn how members of the community experience racism in their own lives. Members from other villages and guests are always welcome!
Meetings are held twice a month, on the first and third Fridays. The first Friday meets at 10:00 - 11:30 AM and the third Friday at Noon - 1:30pm. Discussions from previous meetings can be found in the 1619 Project Discussion blog to read the postings and to learn more about this group.
