Powerful Conversations on Race: Slavery, Survival, and Community

October 8, 2017 3-4:30 pm
MLK Community Center (40 W. 40th Street)

Powerful Conversations on Race: Slavery, Survival, and Community

On October 8th, INRC Neighborhood Development Specialist, Ashlee Weaver, will be facilitating the conversation on Slavery, Survival, and Community. 

“Powerful Conversations on Race” is a community discussion series that invites you to share in facilitated critical conversations on both historical and contemporary issues surrounding race.  While this is not a book discussion group, we will be using Charleston Syllabus: Readings on Race, Racism and Racial Violence(2016) to guide our discussions in effort to deeply listen to one another and reflect our underlying beliefs and values. Over the course of the next 12-18 months, we’ll relaunch the entire series from start to finish two additional times to allow you to jump in at will! You do not need to purchase the book to participate. Learn more here.

Walk-ins are welcome, but RSVPs are greatly appreciated so that we can accommodate any special needs and create the best environmental possible for these conversations. RVSP here.
