CURB Dialogue Meeting – 22 February, 2011 7 p.m. at Cathedral Hall

February 18, 2011

Dear CURB members and supporters,

CURB is excited to announce its first dialogue meeting for 2011 focused on the historical development of White affirmative action in Bermuda since settlement in 1609, and the legal restrictions put in place to prevent Black economic empowerment.  While progress in economic development by Blacks has occurred, the workshop will reveal  the ongoing socio-economic gulf between Bermuda’s two dominant races remains wide.  Finally, participants will learn why the sole piece of workforce equity legislation introduced in 2007 by a Black-majority supported Government, led to predominantly White opposition and was eventually scrapped.  The presentation will be approximately 45 minutes long followed by a dialogue.

Presenters:  Cordell Riley & Lynne Winfield

Dialogue Subject: “Structural Racism in Bermuda: Its History, its Legacy and Impact Today”

Location: Cathedral Hall

Date:  Tuesday 22nd February

Time: 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

This presentation is open to CURB members and supporters and their invited guests, i.e. friends, family and colleagues.
