Discussing Race with Drupal Nerds: Chicago Drupal Meetup

Our Drupal community is just that...a community. We're made up of a lot of different perspectives, backgrounds, and cultures. This talk provides Drupal nerds with concepts to talk about race within our community. It will use programming analogies such as "open source", "EOL", and "dependency injection" to help understand why talking about race is so hard, what we can do to make it easier, and make our community more enriching.
