Can't We All Just Get Along? A Manual for Discussion Programs on Racism and Race Relations.
Niedergang, Mark; McCoy, Martha L.
This manual offers a means for individuals to engage members of their community or organization in a dialogue on racism and race relations. In particular, it provides basic building blocks for a discussion program on racism and race relations and some suggestions for designing a program pertinent to particular needs of groups or organizations. The study circle philosophy used encourages respectful listening to everyone's views. Part 1 of the manual offers a brief introduction, describes ways that study circles can help address racism and race relations, and provides core material for the discussion program consisting of five possible sessions. Some ideas are included for leading and organizing discussions on racism and race relations and general information about the study circle process. Part 2 shows how to build on or adapt the sessions described in Part 1 to meet the needs of particular institutions. This section also includes 3 readings on race relations, an annotated bibliography of 22 books and articles and 2 videos, 2 other bibliographies, and tips on reading media coverage of the Los Angeles (California) riots and their aftermath. Also listed are other resources available from the Study Circle Resource Center. (JB)
