Dialogue: Racism

“Men hate each other because they fear each other, and they fear each other because they don’t know each other, and they don’t know each other because they are often separated from each other.”      Dr. Martin Luther King

 Dialogue: Racism provides a safe, respectful and loving atmosphere for individuals to learn new information, share their experiences, ask questions-to dispel the fears; get to know each other, and to stop the separation.
