“I Don’t See Color”...And Other Racial Myths In The U.S


Presented by: Alan Headbloom of Headbloom Cross-Cultural Communication

Since the 2008 election of Barack Obama, the U.S. is now colorblind. True or False?

Alan Headbloom takes an historical and linguistic approach to telling why this claim just isn’t true. This workshop will cover:

  • The human condition of race perception
  • An examination of our own myopias
  • Expressions to be banned from our 21st century vocabulary
  • Preparing for the family reunion with racist cousin Ned
