About the Course:
At this point you or your organization are more familiar with the RCC tool, and clearer about the path to sustaining racially conscious dialogue and systemic change action. It is essential that we address the most potent manifestations of racism that keep White, as a color, culture, and consciousness elevated and dominant. The price of the ticket to success in a racially dominant society is to elevate White, and to do so largely by constructing Black as the essential below (Black African American, Black Asian, Black Indigenous, Black Latinx . . .). We will name, unpack, and interrupt the ways in which we have internalized anti-blackness to imagine a new path forward.
About our Facilitator/CEO:
Tony Hudson is driven by a purpose to align people and resources to center racial consciousness and intersectional equity in relationships and collaboration.

Before founding Racially Conscious Collaboration™ Tony spent the last twelve years successfully ushering organizations across the US through racial consciousness development and organizational change. Tony is currently completing a dissertation documenting the experiences of leaders that have engaged in successful systemic racial equity transformation with his help as a consultant. Before his work as a consultant, he led systemic racial equity transformation work for the Osseo School District of Minnesota as the Executive Director of Equity. Prior to his experience as Executive Director, he was a Head Principal and led his school to the 99th percentile in Minnesota for the rate at which they were eliminating racial disparities. During his time in educational administration Tony volunteered with Isaiah Minnesota where he led school superintendents statewide to address the cradle to prison pipeline that results from racial disparities in school discipline.
Tony has also served in community-based, non-profit leadership positions, including the Minnesota Children’s Defense Fund where he founded several Freedom Schools. Maybe most important, he made Denzel Washington’s “Devil in a Blue Dress” his all-time favorite movie and continues to spend a short infinity convincing his kids that since he lived through the golden ages of 80s, 90s, and early 2000s hip hop that he has more credibility as a fan and critic of the genre they do. . still trying to convince them.
