Eighteen of us from the Pioneer Valley—people of African, Indigenous and European descent—traveled to the Low Country of South Carolina for a weekend of dialogue and cultural exchange focusing on racism and white privilege. We gathered with 12 South Carolinians as well as 4 of our Hands Across the Hills Kentucky friends in intense dialogue circles. Come hear B4U members, including facilitator Paula Green and Steering Committee member Amilcar Shabazz describe their experience.
What did we explore in the closed daily dialogues?
What shifts and insights emerged?
What did we learn about each other & ourselves?
Where does this endeavor go next?
