Tending the Garden of Cross-Racial Friendships

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In our unprecedented times, talking about race and building cross-racial relationships are critical to the future of our country. 
  • How do we venture into this without offending?
  • What questions can we ask? 
  • What do we do when we inevitably step in the fertilizer?

The presenters will discuss their cross-racial (Black and White) friendship, how it blossomed, and what surprised them about each other. They will guide participants through examining some of their relationship expectations and how to navigate those with people from different areas/backgrounds. Even if you live in a seemingly homogenous area, this session will support your ability to connect with people from different backgrounds.

In this Coffee Break you will:
  • Understand your racial norms.
  • Get a sneak-peek into a lasting friendship.
  • Find increased comfort in cross-cultural interactions.
