Exploring Social Consciousness and Culture

On January 19, our first Saturday School Day of the new year, we will have a special morning devoted to topics related to race, identity, culture and social consciousness with Dennis Febo.  Audiences describe Febo as 'Genuine,' 'Engaging,' and 'Extraordinary.'  "He delivered a powerful message in a very humble manner, and I think that was what I appreciated most," said a student who attended one of his workshops.
 
A native of Brooklyn, NY, Febo was raised in many different parts of the United States and Puerto Rico. Through experiences with the disparities of poverty, racism, and prejudice, Febo had an early goal to help people reach their true potential through education on social consciousness and culture.
 
Beginning in high school, Febo targeted youth in disadvantaged communities through art, music, and entertainment.  Knowing youth internalize messages provided through the arts, he hoped to explore the social conditions in which students are a part, and how they could overcome them through unity and work.
 
Continuing this work in college through Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, and after as he earned a Masters of Arts in Humanities at the University of Buffalo, Febo found that his speaking abilities were able to draw the attention of many, allowing him to organize on larger social levels as he discussed topics including race, ethnicity, the mind, identity, and social consciousness. Today, he does this work through his consulting group Guazabara Insights.
 
We look forward to spending a morning with Dennis Febo and learning from his experience and insights. His talk will be followed by two alternating 45-minute small group activities: a Q&A style conversation with Febo, and another exercise organized by Bert Nascimento, Co-Director of Equity and Inclusion. The program will end by 11:30 AM, though those interested in continuing the dialogue may join Febo at lunch directly following.
 
To learn more about Dennis Febo listen to his TedTalk.

    With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
