Our Turn: A Conversation for Women 10:00-11:30 am
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 10:00 AM until 11:30 AM
Mill City Quarter Club Room
322 2nd St. S.
MCC women, you are invited to attend Our Turn: A Conversation for Women. This week, Marilyn Broussard will lead a discussion on "Race Matters Today." Taking a knee; Black Lives Matter; immigration issues; crime and mass incarceration of blacks; racial gaps in education, income and wealth; and the racial component of our current political divide are just some of the topics dominating the news. Come and share your views. Do we overestimate or underestimate the prevalence of systemic racism? What is the influence of media coverage? How do you explain the "why" of racist beliefs to yourself? Does implicit racial bias get in the way of solving some of our societal problems, even those without an explicit racial component? Solutions? Hopeful signs of progress?
