As co-learners in this series, the Guild for Community Arts Education kicks us off with a transparent sharing in a panel discussion of our own anti-racism journey, told by current board members and staff, with dialogue facilitator Masharika Prejean Maddison. We interrogate the roots of racial inequity within American society and specifically within the Guild, which ultimately led us to start building an anti-racism foundation. We speak to the journey of making this shift in an 82-year-old institution with roots in the settlement house movement, which promoted, among other things, the assimilation of immigrants to American culture. We will also look forward towards what it will take for the Guild to become an anti-racist organization.
