Race, Racism, and Critical Race Theory (CRT):
What they are, what they are not, and why they matter
Thanks to everyone who came out for Dr. Jamison's presentation on CRT. For those of you who were unable to attend, or would like more information, you may click on this link to view the slideshow.
Please join us for a community presentation by Gregg Jamison, PhD.
Professor Jamison is an anthropological archaeologist who teaches a variety of introductory and upper level anthropology classes at UWM-Waukesha. Anthropology is the holistic study of people, and his focus in all classes is to encourage students to think critically about what it means to be human, where we come from, how and why we are such an incredibly diverse species, and how our past is connected to our present. Anthropology's emphasis on the interconnections between biology and culture guides his instruction in a wide variety of topics, including race, racism, and Critical Race Theory (CRT). His goals in teaching are to promote awareness and understanding, not shame or guilt.
The purpose of this presentation is to provide a non-political introduction to this timely topic. Dr. Jamison will define the terms race, racism, and critical race theory, explain what they are and what they are not, and talk about why they matter. He will also provide you with resources for further learning. There will be time after the talk for questions.
This presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, April 5th at 7:00 PM at Toffler's Pub & Grill (200 5th Avenue, New Glarus). We will be gathering upstairs. (You may purchase drinks at the bar before the presentation, but the kitchen is closed on Tuesdays.)
April 5th is election day, so remember to vote before the presentation!
