DOING THE WORK

This is a programme for white and other privileged people to learn and reflect together about racism. It is deep learning since the vast majority of us were raised in a culture where racism against people of Afro-Caribbean heritage is endemic and because we all play a part in systemic racism.

More dates coming soon
Weekly Event every Friday 16:00 - 17:00 PM beginning 7 August, 2020

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?
