Powerful Conversations on Race (February 2022)
February 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
POSTPONED UNTIL MARCH 13.
Due to a scheduling oversight the February Powerful Conversations on Race session will be postponed until March 13, 2022. This month’s dialogue conflicts with an iconic American tradition – Super Bowl Sunday. This has resulted in an extremely low number of registrations. Our work is sustained by a cadre of community-based facilitators that volunteer to lead these difficult community conversations each month. As such, we want to be respectful of the considerable amount of work and time they give to make this the best experience possible, which means having participants to attend the dialogue. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you in March!
Powerful Conversations on Race (PCR) is a monthly community dialogue series exploring topics around race, racism, and the resulting impact. Rooted in humanities- and arts-based sources primarily from The Charleston Syllabus, these sessions give us time to practice and normalize hard conversations about race.
There will only be ONE session track in February (e.g., no Race & track) and the focus will be on The Civil War & Reconstruction in History and Memory.
A little more about Powerful Conversations on Race:
- This IS NOT a lecture or book club, but rather a space for community to come together to dive into a variety of topics concerning race.
- Active participation is expected and a camera “check-in” is required.
- When possible, participants are urged to join via laptop or tablet rather than smart phone to better engage with the content and others.
- Entry into the session is not granted after 3:15pm.
- After registering via Eventbrite, you will immediately receive an email confirmation with the Zoom link at the very bottom of the confirmation message.
