Let’s Talk: Decoding Racism with Education, Understanding and Communication

To engage the community in an open discussion about the African American experience, this year’s Black History program will focus on systematic racial inequality. The film “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequality” by Shakti Butler, PHD, is an introduction to the dynamics of systemic racial inequity and challenges America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequity. Designed for dialogue, the film works to disentangle internal beliefs, attitudes and pre-judgments within, and to build skills to address the structural drivers of social and economic inequities. Film and discussion will take place from 2-5:00PM, with commentary and discussion led by Dia Penning. Activities will also include historical storyboards, and musical and dance performances during lunch. The event is free and open to the public.
