Too often, discussions about race either stay at surface-level or happen only among audiences steeped in knowledge about sociology, history, systemic racism and privilege. The goal of The Race Cards is to facilitate honest, authentic discussion around race in a way that is accessible to everyone.
Each deck of cards contains questions such as “When did you first become aware of your race?” and “What do the hashtags #blacklivesmatter and #alllivesmatter mean to you?” Questions span participants’ personal experiences, the current state of justice and race relations in our communities, and participants’ take on concepts such as privilege and equity.
This event is a public education program hosted by The Jacksonville Historical Society. Trained facilitators will conduct the event in groups of 5 to 6. The session will begin promptly at 6 p.m. and run for about 90 minutes. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
