PRE-REQUISITES:   Participants to do 1 of the following:

By weaving the story of James Baldwin into a narrative about the Black experience today in America, Eddie Claude challenges us to find our better selves, individually and collectively. This book is not a biography of Baldwin in the literary sense.  Instead, the book permits us to see today through the eyes of Baldwin as he struggled with both the trauma he and the nation had experienced and the grit he demonstrated just to survive. It allows us to see the interconnectedness of history using the Civil Rights Movement as the backdrop.

Meeting ID: 853 5520 5781
Passcode: 496301

Even before this year of COVID and political challenges, separating our work and home life was challenging.  We have increasingly become accustomed to an unhealthy "always on" and "instant response" set of expectations in our digital culture that has had a tremendous effect on our mental, emotional, and physical health.  For many of us, this has been compounded by our year working from home.  In this hour session, we will explore specific ways we can take some control to create and maintain healthy boundaries for ourselves, so we can be our most grounded, healthy and present.

PASSCODE:       628526

PRE-REQUISITES:   Please view the documentary before the session at https://kong.sinclair.edu/record=b2181815.

Discuss the documentary directed by Shalini Kantayya, who interviews leading experts in technology (computer scientists, data scientists, cybersecurity and marketing experts) to explore how technology -- specifically AI, machine learning, and algorithms -- is susceptible to socioeconomic, gender-based, and racial bias. The standout among the interviewees is MIT-based computer scientist and digital activist Joy Buolamwini, who founded the Algorithmic Justice League.  She discusses how digital bias impacts all sorts of technology, from the way facial recognition software can fail to accurately detect darker-skinned faces (or incorrectly match faces to criminal databases) to the manner in which some digital scanners reject job, loan, credit card applicants, and so forth. Other data scientists and experts weigh in on how social media usage and copious saved user data create such highly targeted ads that the poor are subject to predatory practices while the wealthy are bombarded with the latest luxury items.

The atrocities committed against Jews in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s are well-known.  What is less well-known is that, when initially developing the discriminatory laws intended to disenfranchise German Jewish citizens, German government officials researched the laws of a country they knew had a long history of legal racial discrimination: The United States of America.  Many of Germany’s laws were inspired by and modeled on the discriminatory laws passed against Black Americans in the United States, particularly in the South.  Please join us for a discussion of the role the United States played in informing German legislation that would eventually lead to the Holocaust.

Please join Charmaine Webster, Founder and Board President for Black Girl Strategies: Womanish Projects, to discuss Black women’s leadership and labor.  For decades, Black Women have worked to build political and economic power for various groups. Black women have picked up the moral banner to save our children, community, men, and democracy. Furthermore, Black women are so accustomed to building for everyone else that at times we fail to consider what specific demands we should make of others. In this webinar we will discuss why we need a Black Women’s agenda and what will it take to build collective power for and with Black women and girls.
