Editor’s note 3/3/16

 “Intensive” is the word to describe the “Analyzing and Understanding Systemic Racism Workshop” that is drawing some 50 Springfieldians this weekend. The 2 ½-day training, sponsored by the Springfield Coalition on Dismantling Racism and held at Sacred Heart Convent March 3-5, will offer participants a deeper look at the historical development of racism in the U.S, how it is perpetuated in institutions today and how it affects both people of color and white people. This weekend’s graduates will join hundreds of Springfield-area residents who have taken the training over the past several years in an opportunity for a new perspective on a complex problem. The hope is that enough individuals with a changed perspective will lead to a changed Springfield. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
