Through group and interactive exercises, this session will explore how race influences our worldviews, conscious and unconscious communication through history, legacy, and socialization.

Led by Okogyeamon (Herbert Perkins, Ph.D., MDiv., who received the name Okogyeamon during a naming ceremony in Ghana in 1998; it means “He who saves a village.”) Okogyeamon is the co-founder of ASDIC Metamorphosis (Antiracism Study Dialogue Circles) an esteemed antiracism workshop provider.
