Let's Talk About Race - October 29 at 6:30 p.m.

Clyde Ford , Humanities Washington, Let's Talk About Race

PLEASE NOTE THAT PROGRAM DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED. This program will now be on Tuesday, October 29.

Racism thrives in silence. It’s when we stop talking to one another about our beliefs that prejudices go unchallenged, and the gap between us widens.

Yet race is one of the most difficult topics to discuss in American society. If we are to heal many of our country’s social, economic, and political divides, we can’t afford to avoid the conversation.

With warmth and openness, renowned author and professor Clyde Ford leads a discussion on race in modern-day America with a heavy emphasis on audience participation. Meant for people of all races, participants will come away with tools for engaging in conversations about race in an honest, transparent, and meaningful way. Though ambitious, this talk aims to make a difference in bridging and healing the racial divide.

This event is made possible by Humanities WA and is part of the 2019 Skagit Reads program.
