FACING THE CHALLENGE OF RACISM AND RACE RELATIONS:
Democratic Dialogue and Action for Stronger Communities.


FACING THE CHALLENGE OF RACISM AND RACE RELATIONS: Democratic Dialogue and Action for Stronger Communities, a study circle discussion guide designed to help you create democratic dialogue to make a real difference in your community. This updated guide builds on the success of two previous editions of SCRC's "Can't We All Just Get Along?" A manual for Discussion Programs on Racism and Race Relations (which many Focus readers know well).

Bringing the lessons of many vigorous study circle programs together, Facing the Challenge of Racism and Race Relations offers:

- point-by-point guidelines for organizing community-wide study circle programs;

- tips for facilitators;

- five compelling discussion sessions, which touch on history, institutional racism, economic opportunity, internalized racism, prejudice, public policy, and strategies for change;

- guidelines for moving to action;

- tips on writing and adapting discussion materials;

- examples of action steps taken by study circle participants around the country;

- a new, expanded resource list.
