NICOLE PEARSON- If handled carefully every negative experience can be a lesson, one that connects us to ourselves and gets us closer to the true nature of reality. As people of color our encounters with racism and other isms offers us a unique opportunity for understanding society by unmasking the power dynamics that foster injustice. Living abroad, by virtue of being in a different context, gives you the chance to see that experience from outside, rather than from within. And affords you the freedom to decide exactly who and what you want to be.
Join me for an evening of discussion and tools to help you channel these experiences. Learn to use them to get savvy about the world and develop a new vision of yourself and your possibilities.
