BSU Graduate Students in EDAC 698 Cultural Identities and Community Engagement are embarking on the annual immersive learning project. This year, they are creating a facilitator guide for community conversation, using the 2016 Facing Racism Book. The facilitator guide will be distributed to academic and community educators interested in facilitating community conversations on strategies of inclusion in all aspects of our community.
Please bring the book, Facing Racism, with you to this community event. If you do not have a copy of the book, you can view at: http://racemuncie.facingproject.com/our-stories/. From this webpage you can view the book or an individual story.
EDAC 698 Cultural Identities and Community Engagement is constructed from the community workshop curriculum developed by It Is Well With My Soul (IIWWMS) community program. It is Well With My Soul focuses on racial healing via family and cultural history research presentation, and publication.
