Description The New Conversations? Uncovering Five Myths that Support Racism dialogue tool is designed for individuals and groups who have begun their journey into exploring racism and want to learn more about the various facets of the problem. The Five Myths tool draws on the work of white author Peggy McIntosh who writes, ?How have whites kept such a strong sense of pride and deservedness? The answer, I think, is that white people are raised on five strong cultural myths. . . These lay the foundation for our feeling good about ourselves as white people, and they work in us to override and discredit counter-evidence. They also deter us from entering into serious discussions about racism.? The dialogue uses Dr. McIntosh's five myths as a jumping-off place to examine the impact of the myths on both people of color and white people. This two and a half hour dialogue uses both small and large group activities to help participants recognize the myths in everyday experiences,explore their power, and practice countering them. The dialogue also encourages people to consider taking action against racism in their lives. The dialogue is designed for groups of 10-30.
