Oneness of Humankind: Working Against Racism and Racial Disparities in Madison
A Conversation with Professors Richard Davis and Teri Dobbs

Join us for our fourth annual winter retreat. Bagels and coffee will be served at 9:00 a.m., and we’ll have song session at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome. The adult and children’s programs will be from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. If you would like to stay for lunch, please bring a brown bag lunch.

ADULT PROGRAM: "Oneness of Humankind: Working Against Racism and Racial Disparities in Madison." We are pleased to welcome Richard Davis, President of the Madison Wisconsin Institute for the Healing of Racism and Professor of Bass (European Classical and Jass), Jazz History, and Combo Improvisation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He will be accompanied by CSS member, Teri Dobbs, Associate Professor and current Chair of Music Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Recognizing the essential oneness of the human race, that all human beings share common ancestors, and that all of us share the responsibility to realize in our personal and social lives the oneness of humanity, we will engage in open and honest discussion with each other in order to address racism as a social and spiritual disease.

CHILDREN’S PROGRAM: We’ll have lots of workshops for kids of all ages. Get ready for art, music, and other projects.
