We often trip over each other as we navigate difficult and pressing issues in our interactions. We have all been socialized differently when it comes to the racial issues that are getting new attention. This keynote is designed to help us examine the stories that shape our racialized understanding of the world and the opportunities to engage beyond the challenges of our current racial discourse.
