Neuroscience of Prejudice: Racism and the Brain

Sunday, February 21, 2021, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM


COCC's 2021 Season of Nonviolence with Larry S. Sherman, Ph.D. - Professor of Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University

Racism exists because of racial prejudice, where we make judgements about people based entirely on their race and our own unconscious bias, and not on actual experience. Our brains react to people who are different from us within milliseconds. In this lecture, Dr. Larry Sherman will explore how our brains engage in prejudice, the consequences of prejudice and racism for both racists and people who experience racism in their daily lives, and how understanding these processes suggest ways that we can overcome prejudice and racism in our society.

Cost: Free but registration is required.
