    Talking about race is hard. It’s also important.

    We’re joining with members of the Berlin Equity Action Team to present this conversation about racism, white privilege, prejudice and bias using the successful Let’s Talk Race curriculum created by the Richland Library in Columbia, SC.

     

    What are Courageous Conversations?

    Courageous Conversations is a small-group discussion series that will provide an opportunity for people of all backgrounds and viewpoints to discuss important local, cultural, social, and political issues in a safe environment where differing opinions, patient listening, and respectful discussion are welcomed as a necessary part of building connection with others and identifying shared values. Participants may be asked to read short articles, books, or listen to podcasts prior to the meetings and will be asked to abide by our shared discussion guidelines.

    Library staff will facilitate the conversations and ensure that all participants have the opportunity to share in the discussion.

    The event is in person and attendance space is limited; please remember to register.
