Pre-training requirement: 

Before the training, it is required to watch the documentary: Race: The Power of An Illusion: http://newsreel.org/video/RACE-THE-POWER-OF-AN-ILLUSION
This will help provide you the background for how racism became constructed and continued in the US. There are inexpensive rental options on the website.
