ROUNDTABLE: Dismantling Racism

You’re invited to tonight’s Roundtable, 6-7:30! Diedre Houchen and Miriam Elliot will be leading a discussion on “Dismantling Racism.” The’ll offer a working definition for racism and then describe the process used by the City of Gainesville in their current anti-racism efforts. In addition to addressing the question of whether this work is needed in Gainesville, we’ll also discuss experiences pertaining to race through the eyes of those present – and question what stories are necessary but not represented at the table.  We’ll be serving black beans and rice with peach salsa. Please bring a dish to share if you can. If you can’t, come anyway!
