The Illusion of Whiteness: Getting To The Root of Race In America

Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 | Temple Isaiah

Journalist and documentarian John Biewen -- producer of the Peabody Award-nominated "Seeing White" podcast series -- will lead a weekend journey on race in America and its meaning and impact on our lives.


“Whiteness – An Historical Overview”
Friday, June 14 | 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. | Following Shabbat Services, Dinner and Speaker

Learn why most of what we think we know about race is inaccurate. We will take a closer look at some of the pivotal legislative and legal landmarks that we never learned in US History class.


A Deeper Look Into Race In America
Saturday, June 15 | 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

What the heck is going on these days with White folks in America?  What is “Whiteness” and how did it begin?  How do we identify as White people in a nation which defined itself by fabricating race as the main criterion for conferring rights and privileges, and governing its citizens? Find answers to these questions and more.

 Lunch | 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. 
"Looking Backward and Moving Forward"
1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Where have we progressed and what can we do to de-mythologize whiteness and contribute to a healthier conversation about race?
