NCRA –WGBH Forum: Race Amity and The Other Tradition

Friday, March 21, 2014
6:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m.
Yawkey Theater, WGBH
1 Guest Street, Boston MA

 

The purpose of the NCRA – WGBH Forum, Race Amity and The Other Tradition, is to contribute to the public discourse on race in America. The specific goal of the forum is to further define and explore "the other tradition" as a perspective and frame of reference in the discourse on improving American race relations.

The perspective of "the other tradition" is that in America’s racial history the dominant tradition of racism has always had a parallel moral counterweight that promoted access, equity, and social justice. This moral counterweight held at its core humanistic and spiritual values accentuated by amity and close cross-racial/cross-cultural collaboration, which, in contrast to racism, is "the other tradition."
