    This course will review the history of race in our country, offer opportunities for learners to delve into self identity and grow more competent in understanding how their identity has been shaped, how it impacts their perceptions of others, and others’ perceptions of them.  It will focus on what it means to realize race is operative and respond through the lenses of race implicitly. It will deconstruct what it means to be racist.  It will explore the reality of institutional/structural racism. It will supply strategies for developing a healthy space for intercultural and interracial involvement where authentic voices can be heard and empathy can be evoked. It will be a course steeped in developing and sustaining empathetic and engaging interaction with those who may seem different because of our socialization expectations. You will learn greater levels of cultural literacy and higher agency and efficacy through clear, confident cross racial dialogue and engagement to support strong relationships and a “more perfect union”. All three session recommended but not required.

    Established in 2009 by two war veterans, Lincoln Land Honor Flight became part of the National Network that serves WWII, Korean War Era and Vietnam War Era personnel.  This group honors vets and their service to our country by providing one-day, no charge flights to Veterans who are willing and able to fly to Washington to visit their memorials.  You will learn about the origins of the National Network and the LLHF group, how they are funded and what the requirements are to become a "Guardian', ensuring comfort and safety through their day in Washington.  Two veterans are planning to attend and speak about their experience.
