Embracing Complexity: A Conversation about Race, Power, Privilege and Prejudice in Our Community

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 6:00pm

It’s too simple to say that the South has a troubled past and present when it comes to matters of racial inequity and prejudice.  What will our future be?  So many complex issues arise – from the individual to the global, the personal to the political, when we engage in dialogue around these challenging and important subjects.  How can we begin to examine our own beliefs and blindspots, and have a productive, transformative discussion?
