Conversations of the Heart – Exploring Race Unity and Oneness

Author JoAnn Borovicka (a white woman) presented on her three years’ process interviewing Richard Abercrombie (an African American man) as well as his family and friends in her collaboration with Richard on the writing of his recently published memoirs, Crossing the Line: A Memoir of Race, Religion and Change. In this interactive presentation, JoAnn shared what immersion in Richard’s story taught her about the culture of whiteness and the often surprising practical steps that white people can take to contribute to the solution of racial prejudice.
