Racism is not a thing of the past. Discrimination is still a fact of life for many people of color and immigrants, especially in housing, employment and education. One way of taking the first steps in creating a community where everyone feels safe, valued and respected is by engaging in dialogue about race and racism. The Talking Circles on Race and Racism are designed to serve as a discussion tool to increase community communication about race and racism and help individuals increase their comfort level in addressing issues of racism in their own lives.

Ithaca College students are invited to participate to come together in a safe environment to share feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a sustained, confidential, frank dialogue around issues of race and racism. The Diversity Awareness Committee will initiate a Student Talking Circle facilitated by professionals from the Multicultural Resource Center. The Talking Circle will be made up of 16 racially and ethnically diverse people who will meet once a week for five consecutive sessions to self-reflect, share experiences, and learn from others’ perspectives and attitudes.

Ithaca is well known for the beauty of its gorges—a main attraction in the region and a must see for members of our campus community. Perhaps less known is the potential for danger and the fact that it is illegal to swim in these gorges.

"–What exactly does ‘a Hispanic’ look like? Do I need to look like Juan Valdez and sell Folgers in a T.V. commercial, sift my fingers through Colombian coffee beans I picked myself, sitting on the back of my reliable mule, Conchita, next to a brokedown Chiva in an oversized sombrero,– for me to “look” Latino? or look like “a Hispanic” as you say? And what is “a Hispanic” exactly?" (Carlos Andres Gomez, Juan Valdez)
