We all represent a piece in the jigsaw puzzle of our society and this 2-hour dialogue with Marymount California University Professor Carlos Royal will highlight concepts and look at ways we can work together to move forward in reducing prejudice and bias. Participants will have the option to join breakout rooms for small discussions and may opt out if they wish. Pre-readings will be sent to participants for background and discussion.
Carlos Royal, Associate Professor of Sociology, has been teaching at Marymount California University for almost 14 years. His current courses include Race, Class, and Gender, Research Methods, Statistics, Introduction to Sociology, and Global City: Los Angeles. As the last class implies, he loves L.A. The City of Los Angeles is the focus of his research interest (with special emphasis in race and gender). He uses Los Angeles as the foundation in many of his courses and leads a tour of L.A. for students every semester. Most recently, he took a group of students to Bruce’s Beach, a beach in Manhattan Beach that was Black owned and operated. Carlos is a devoted traveler and has traveled with students to London and Cuba. He has been voted Faculty Member of the Year four times by the student body and Educator of the Year by his faculty colleagues.
