Past racial bias in constructing history is examined by a group of women with 2020 vision - looking back at what is recorded in mainline textbooks, examining the current climate, and anticipating future impact.  ACPE has long been aware of the importance of a client’s, counselee’s, patient’s individual \history.  Family systems has helped with understanding the impact of generational transmission, the role of the individual’s extended and ancestral familial history.   
This panel will unfold, from their research and experience, the repercussions of one’s cultural history.  These panelists are theologians working as CPE supervisors, ministers, leaders of relief organizations, teaching faculty and one Bishop. They represent Asian-American, Native American, African American, Italian American, and Caucasian American women. The panel draws from their recent collaborative work, Women with 2020 Vision: American Theologians on the Vote, Voice, and Vision of Women (Fortress Press, 2020). Their findings and applications address ethnic/racial/cultural histories that cause us to gasp and gulp for intake of fresh air.
