Resolving Social Inequities -Empathy as a Tool

Prejudice and social bias are deeply woven into the fabric of our society and have been since our beginnings.  We will look at the problem from both intellectual and emotional viewpoints and discuss how pro-active efforts to develop empathy from an early age may be one pathway to a better social future.  Dr. Martin will share specific ideas for teaching empathy, ideas he himself has developed and modeled in a long career in education.  Readings from Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste will be part of the service.
