[ARCHIVED] Community Forum - Facing Race

Talking about race can be uncomfortable. We fear saying the wrong thing or offending others. Some don’t see it as a big deal, and many of us don’t know how to begin the conversation.

The City of Roseville invites you to start the conversation and engage in a discussion about “race.”

On May 22, the Human Rights Commission, in partnership with The Saint Paul Foundation, will host an in-depth discussion on “White People Facing Race: Uncovering the Myths That Keep Racism in Place.” This will be a safe place for participants of all races to explore their personal and societal views on race and gain an understanding of where those views come from. Space is limited to 25 people.

Sarah Super will lead a discussion that was developed by Peggy McIntosh, Ph.D., Associate Director of the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women. Participants will learn about the myths that entrench racism in our society. These myths include Meritocracy; Manifest Destiny; White Racelessness; Monoculture; and White Moral Elevation.

The forum will meet at Roseville City Hall, 2660 Civic Center Drive, on Thursday, May 22 at 6:30 p.m. Contact Human Rights Commission Liaison Kari Collins at or 651-792-7023 to register.
