praise be!

Last week I was telling you about the William Cross lecture I attended at PSU: Transacting Black Identity in Everyday Life. It was an awesome 2 hours of discovery and realization that went by too fast. I was left asking, ‘how can I get in front of this guy again for a longer exploration of this topic.’

It was that powerful.

I am stunned, but thrilled to find Dr. Cross will be back in Oregon in July as a faculty member at the Summer Institute. He is teaching a workshop (#21) July 24-28 on the same topic—now expanded to cover how different racial and ethnic identities operate, adapt and relate in various settings.

There are very few events that I feel strongly enough about to grab people by the shoulders and exhort them to attend. This is one that must not be missed.
