Writer and activist Alix Jules presented a program, Race and Racism in America, which explored topics including racial tones in culture, religion, and their effect on US politics. He reviewed some of the current stats and prevailing theories that continue to shape racial dynamics, while examining the concept of privilege in the Era of Trump. The writer also shared a candid, but humorous look at why Humanists often struggle with finding proper footing when discussing these topics. Jules touched on the backlash against PC culture and why words like “diversity” became a pejorative.
This program was underwritten in part by a Harvey LeBrun Chapter Grant through the American Humanist Association.
