Or, have you grappled with how to answer their questions about skin color, stereotypes, and the experiences of different races in the USA? If so, please join us for a workshop on Tues., 3/19/19 from 6-7:30 pm, led by Dr. Kristie A. Ford, Professor of Sociology and founder of the Intergroup Relations Program at Skidmore College.
About Dr. Ford: Dr. Kristie A. Ford is professor of Sociology and the Director of the Center for Leadership, Teaching, and Learning (CLTL) at Skidmore College. She received her B.A. in Sociology from Amherst College and her M.A. and PhD in Sociology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
