Powerful Conversations on Race (Jan. 2022)
January 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Powerful Conversations on Race (PCR) is a monthly community dialogue series — with two tracks — exploring topics around race, racism, and the resulting impact. Rooted in humanities- and art-based materials and sources, these sessions give us time to practice and normalize hard conversations about race.
This IS NOT a lecture or book club, but rather a space for community to come together and dive deeply into a variety of topics concerning race. Active participation is expected.
PCR 101 sessions are great starting place for those new to these kinds of dialogues and/or those wishing to more fully understand America’s complex racial history. Race & . . . sessions explore more contemporary issues are are designed for those who wish to continue past PCR 101.
There will only be one session in January and we will explore excerpts from the writings and speeches of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
