COLORBLIND: Achieving Racial Equity in a Colorblind Society


We cannot solve a problem that we are denying. Using the “Racism without Racist” framework developed by Eduardo Bonilla Silva, participants will learn to identify four colorblind ideologies manifested in a post-civil right era. Participants will have the opportunity to develop and practice a specific skill set designed to interrupt colorblind discussions and make a correction that redirects the conversation back to the root cause of persistent racial inequities manifested in health and human services.
