Karibu House to create LGBT Kollege using Arcus Foundation grant

DETROIT – Detroit-based Karibu House, Inc. is receiving a grant of $2,000 from the Arcus Foundation for the year 2005 to assist with funding of their new Karibu House Kollege program. The Kollege offers a series of short-term community education courses to anyone interested in learning more about the psychological, social, cultural, political, and historical experiences of LGBT persons of color.
According to Karibu House, “Karibu House Kollege will offer courses to LGBTs of color in order to raise self esteem and self-empowerment, but these courses double as an opportunity for the general public to educate themselves about the real life challenges of being LGBT and a person of color. Such courses have been proven to instill empathy and compassion and to help to break down stereotypes and misinformation about certain groups of people in America.”
The courses will be taught primarily by LGBT instructors who are local activists and/or scholars and will be offered for two semester periods per year, each lasting 6 to 8 weeks in duration. Location for the classes, as well as enrollment information will be announced in the near future. Meanwhile, details about Karibu House Kollege can be obtained by calling the Karibu House hotline at 313-865-2170 ext. 3.
