Through dialogue, workshop participants shall explore how to encourage “truth-hearing” in a culture marked by mystification and falsification regarding racism. What hinders, blocks the possibility of truth telling? What is racial mystification meant to accomplish? What are the tools of mystification? How are we socialized into a system of mystification? What is the “truth” – the social reality – that needs to be proclaimed? How can we antiracist activists open the door to greater truth telling and truth receiving?
