Institute for Dismantling Racism


Institute for Dismantling Racism (IDR)


The Institute for Dismantling Racism is the brainchild of Reverend Willard W. Bass, Jr., which came to fruition in July 2004. While in Wake Forest University Divinity School from 2000-2003, he realized there was a division among people who were called to be connected by Christian faith, if for no other reason. However, there was something that cut across all sectors of life, even ones faith conviction, and that is race and racism.
