Diversity & Belonging Movie Series
Race: The Power of an Illusion
Hosted by the Diversity & Belonging Committee
with Special Guest, Dr. Arthur Jones

Wed., Feb. 21, 28, March 6, & 13,
7 – 9 p.m., Community Center, Love Offering

As part of our Diversity and Belonging initiative, we will watch a three-part documentary, Race: The Power of an Illusion.

The documentary asks a question so basic it’s rarely raised—what is this thing called race?

What we discovered was many of our conventional assumptions about race, for instance, the world’s peoples can be divided biologically along racial lines are wrong. Yet, the costs of racism are very real and can even have biological consequences.

We will also be joined by beloved and longtime professor at the University of Denver, Dr. Arthur Jones, who is currently serving as Interim Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion and will help lead us in discussion and dialogue. The final night will be a group discussion about the documentary.
