Hosted by Racial Justice Rising

When: Saturday, June 1, 10:15 am - 12:15 pm (Doors open at 9:45)
Where: First Congregational Church, 43 Silver Street, Greenfield

What: In May they showed the first section and part of the second.  At this event they will show the rest of part 2 and all of part 3, followed by discussion. Attendance at May program NOT necessary to attend.

The makers of Race: The Power of an Illusion, say that their goal is to make: 
“... starkly visible the ... social, economic, and political conditions that disproportionately channel advantages and opportunities to white people. Perhaps then we can shift the conversation from discussing diversity and respecting cultural difference to building a more just and equitable society.”
