NOVEMBER 2013 SUNDAY FORUMS
November 3rd -- MARK ROBERT SCHNEIDER
“Joe Moakley's Journey from South Boston to El Salvador”
In November 1989 in El Salvador, six Jesuit priests and their two female housekeepers were rousted from their beds and shot as they lay face down on the ground. At first, the Bush administration echoed the Salvadoran military 's line that the rebels must have done it. When House Speaker Tom Foley tasked a senior congressman with investigating the murders, the people of El Salvador found an unlikely champion in the person of John Joseph Moakley, representative from South Boston.
Mark Robert Schneider teaches World History at Suffolk University and Bridgewater State College in the Boston area. He is the author of "We Return Fighting: The Civil Rights Movement in the Jazz Age", which was a finalist for three prestigious prizes in history.
November 10th -- LISA GRAUSTEIN
“Working through Privilege: A Process for Moving Forward”
Lisa Graustein has lived in Dorchester for most of her adult life and teaches at Codman Academy Charter School in Codman Square. She serves as a trainer for the Beyond Diversity 101 program. She recently completed a self-designed Masters in Education on racial justice education, with a focus on supporting white people in becoming more aware of their racial identity and more effective at interrupting racism. Lisa's graduate research focused on using theories of racial identity development and transformational learning to develop a process of white people to understand our racial identity and learn new ways of being that allow to become more effective in interrupting racism and working for racial healing. This presentation will be an overview of this learning process and some thoughts about how it can be used to address other forms of systemic privilege..
