Racial Healing Through an Awkward Dinner

On July 12, 2018, psychology graduate students participated in Awkward Dinner, a curated culinary event at Barry where participants aimed to deconstruct racism in Miami through fearless conversations.

Awkward Dinners are hosted by South Florida People of Color (SFPoC), a nonprofit dedicated to ending racism and bigotry by providing creative programs for courageous conversations and personal interaction across the racial, ethnic, and cultural divides. SFPoC partnered with Barry professor, Dr. Pamela D. Hall, to host an Awkward Dinner for her course called Social and Multicultural Foundations of Psychology. The dinner brought together 15-20 students from diverse backgrounds to discuss racism and white privilege.
