The CURE coalition has grown and we have planned events for 2020:
CONTEMPLATING 400 YEARS OF Inequality w/ Dr. Angel Acosta
Dr.Angel Acosta guides us in an exploration of a graphic timeline documenting the complex history of the US. The timeline focuses on events related to issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and immigration from the time that enslaved Africans first were brought here in 1619 to the present.
The experience combines deep learning, breath work, community building and mindfulness. It is powerful whether you are new to this history, or familiar and wanting to take a deeper dive. In addition to viewing the timeline, participants journal and engage in small-group and whole-group discussion of their learning and reactions.
July 30th, 4-6pm via Zoom
