Respected authors, authorities and experts address issues of the science and history of, and lived experiences with, race in America through a series of free public events.
A Cultural Conversation is an enlightening exchange of thoughts, opinions, and ideas about race in a safe space. For 90 minutes, small groups of friends, families and strangers can participate in a dialogue facilitated by local experts.
Cultural Conversations will occur on Saturdays at noon and 2:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm during the run of the "RACE" exhibition. These conversations are free and open to the public. Space is limited, and registration is required.
Join the Museum on June 10 for a free event celebrating the culturally enriched poetry, music and dance that can join us all together. Featuring nationally known poets and musicians and locally renowned dancers and performers, the day demonstrates how we are more alike than different and that artistic expression can build bridges among people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
The exhibition is designed to encourage dialogue about the ways race and racism impact our communities and provides a valuable opportunity to share this conversation with your students.
