This course introduces students to a variety of issues related to racial identity and culture and their impact and manifestations in community development. We will explore the interplay of racial/ethnic identity, prejudice and power. Students are encouraged to contribute to class discussions and to share their personal experiences and impressions in an open and respectful environment. The issues that will be most germane to this course include cultural competency on race, racism, and ethnicity; culture perspectives on community development, economic justice, the under representation of various racial groups in decision-making and resource control with respect to community development. We will explore the "roots and shoots" of this under representation and strategies for addressing their impacts; examine racial/ethnic identity, privilege, and oppression and explore how they play out in community development. Students will be expected to present their individual perspectives in written reflections as well as prepare written responses to discussion prompts.
