Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories: A Writing Experince

March 23, 2019 from 1-3:30 p.m.

Join Women Writing for (a) Change for the fifth program in this ten-part series, as we explore race from the lens of categories. Joan Ferrante, a professor of sociology at Northern Kentucky University, and her students created a film that examines the history of racial categories, what was lost in the effort to sort humans one from the other, and how that is relevant to today's cultural, political and socio-economic climates.

After viewing the film, Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories, Joan will lead a discussion as we consider how and why categories were formed, and why mourning their existence can bring healing and reconciliation into the lives of those impacted. Writing prompts will guide participants in their own journey to discover, question, and understand more about a topic shaping our national conversation.

Women Writing for (a) Change partners with Northern Kentucky University and Joan Ferrante for the fifth program in this ten-part series. The series is designed to explore and consider a variety of cross cultural expressions, and to foster deeper understanding and awareness of different racial, ethnic, and cultural traditions. Register here.

Note: This program will take place at Women Writing for (a) Change, 6906 Plainfield Road, Cincinnati, OH 45236.

Perhaps it's time we install closed circuit television and ARTIMIS signs for main thoroughfares also used by cyclists, signs to alert drivers to share the road. It could also include a message to state troopers because apparently they need a reminder too.

Finished reading @LidiaYuknavitch Chronology of Water yesterday. Woke up this morning and realized my dreams were water dreams. Wonder what's ahead, as I plow through her other books. The writing is intense, inspiring, makes me want to inject more energy into mine. #amwriting
