WEEK 1 June 21st—June 25th
For this year’s 21-Day Challenge, we’re going back to the beginning. What even is race? When and how was it invented? What does it mean when people say, ‘race is a myth”? Before we dive into this work, we encourage you to take a moment to download your reflection log, join our Facebook group, and most importantly, be open to change. It is first by transforming ourselves that we will transform the world.
Today’s topic centers around the invention of race. Contemporary scholars agree that “race” was a recent invention, a folk idea, not a product of scientific research and discovery. Race and its ideology about human differences arose out of the context of African slavery. Today’s challenge opportunities will take a closer look at how “race” came to be.
