Course Description:

Some teachers are not equipped enough to deal with the clients that they serve due to their lack of exposure to people of color.  As a result, there is often a disconnection between teachers, students, and families because of cultural differences.  Incite a dialogue with others and increase your cultural awareness by having a Courageous Conversation About Race.
