A Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity (ADORE)

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity (ADORE)  meets monthly HERE, 7pm, usually on second Fridays. We meet again second Friday, in April 12, same time, same Zoom link.

We converse about happenings involving race and ethnicity. Join a rousing conversation about post-traumatic slave syndrome (PTSS) during a Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity (ADORE) next Friday, April12, 7pm. Our session will feature Dr. James E. Savage, Jr., a District of Columbia (DC) – based clinical psychologist with more than 50 years of counseling and teaching experience. We’ll look at excerpts from his book, Illumination: Prescriptions for Dealing with Three Blind Mice: Mental Illness, Miseducation and Poverty, and consider perspectives on building a more just and inclusive nation. These book excerpts are worth reading before our gathering.

Dr. Savage’s many posts and honors include membership on the Councils of Elders of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsy). He’s a founding member and past president of the DC Chapter of ABPsy, past president of the DC Psychological Association. Three DC Mayors appointed Dr. Savage as Chairman of the DC Board of Psychology.

Your ideas for potential discussion topics are always welcome. Sheri Verdonk chairs (sverdonk@yahoo.com) and Linda Gravely (duuc-om@daviesuu.org) co-chairs. Among topics discussed in the past are intersectionality, colorism, and representation. ADORE is central to our diligent, intentional work at dismantling racism and other oppressions, including and not limited to antisemitism and sexism, in ourselves and others.
