Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity
Shakti Butler is a multiracial speaker, filmmaker, and founder of World Trust, a resource for education on issues surrounding racial diversity. She leads interactive workshops that strive to provide participants with the tools to develop strategies against racial inequity in everyday life.
Her workshops are of the mixed-media variety, often combining film, dialogue and the number one compassionate educator buzz word: deep listening. If the large number organizations that have hired Dr. Butler are any indication, there is something to these workshops.
Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, Fri, Jan 16, 2pm, Seattle Central Library, 1000 Fourth Avenue, $30
