During this course, participants develop a historical awareness of the events that have created imbalanced levels of power and privilege for different groups of marginalized people.

📓Teaching & learning
"..teaching tugs at the heart, opens the heart, even breaks the heart—and the more one loves teaching, the more heartbreaking it can be.
The courage to teach is the courage to keep one’s heart open in those very moments when the heart is asked to hold more than it is able so that teacher and students and subject can be woven into the fabric of community that learning, and living, require.
It take courage for any teacher who teaches with gladness to accep and respond to periods of burnout, to embrace the heartache of loss and separation.
