Talking About Race: The Language We Use in Our Classrooms and Communities 
What is the rhetoric used surrounding race? How do the choices we make in language influence and inform our social interactions? What should we expect for the future of dialogue about race? This panel discusses how social dynamics impact the way individuals choose (not) to engage over issues of race, culture and ethnicity. Strategies for improving our discourse will also be discussed.
