Listen. Talk. Learn. More at Contemporary Art Museum
August 9, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
Since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson in the summer of 2014, our communities locally, nationally, and globally have been impacted by an increasing amount of conversations about race and related issues. From #BlackLivesMatter to police-involved shootings to our current political rhetoric in the United States, our cultural consciousness around racial bias has been heightened, and we are being expected to understand these concepts with an increased level of dexterity. Though the core of our conversations has remained the same, the ways we talk about them and the stories we tell have changed. We have listened, talked, and learned. And many of us are ready to do more.
Our Listen. Talk. Learn. More session is designed for participants who have already attended one of our Listen. Talk. Learn. sessions and have begun to ask, “What’s next?”
The key objectives for the LTL More are:
•Explore how the realities of power and authority influence our perceptions about the world
•Troubleshoot common points of conflict when discussing race
•Define helpful terminology and the impact of intersectionality on race.
