Racial Disparity in our Community
Let’s Talk About It
Guided study, discussion of the key issues and a bit of history
Led by Kathy Michaelis
Sunday’s January 21st – February 11th
Why do racial disparities continue to plague our country, our state and even our local community? Many of us have been oblivious to the reality of life for people of color, but study after study show the dramatic gap in educational achievement, employment opportunities and overall quality of life that we cannot continue to ignore. Becoming more aware is the first step. Learning some history not typically taught in our classrooms helps to open our eyes. And frank and honest conversation will bring a better understanding for us all.
