History of Racism in the United States Workshop

It's clear that the United States has a deep and complicated relationship with racism. But where did it come from? And how did it thrive, gain power, and grow into a national identity?

We know that racism still exists in the United States, but how was white supremacy built into the very structures of our nation?

In lieu of our regular chapter meeting, we'll be hosting KFTC member Tanya Torp for a special workshop on the history of racism in the United States. Join us for a conversation about the roots of racism, how it has shaped our current climate, and where we can go from here. 

The Episcopal Mission House is located at the corner of MLK and 4th St, just across from the Living Arts and Science Center. The building is wheelchair accessible via an elevator located just inside the main entrance (the side door).

The restrooms at the Episcopal Mission House are gender-specific; however, we strive to provide access to inclusive facilities, and we welcome folks to use whichever restroom aligns with their gender identity and/or makes them feel safe.

If you require further accommodations to fully participate in this workshop, please contact the event organizer.

Childcare will be provided. Please email Meredith for more information: meredith@kftc.org
