This course is part guest-lectured and part participatory. By hearing what community leaders are doing to help the families and youth of minority groups in greater Madison, participants will study “hands-on” models and begin to develop a caring sense of commitment and even obligation to help out themselves.

Speakers will be from the Black, Hispanic, Muslim, Hmong, LGBT and Disabled communities and will represent the Middleton-Cross Plains and Madison Metropolitan school districts, the Madison Police Department, the UW-Madison School of Journalism, The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition, The Schools of Hope Ameritech Project, GSAFE and City/County specialists in visual and hearing impairments, the filmmaker of 19, The Tony Robinson Shooting, A Case of Deadly Bias, Mentoring Positives, Fabu, the former Poet Laureate of Madison and columnist on racial issues, Escalera and others.
