Community Film & Discussion – Race: The Power of an Illusion
November 2 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Keystone Community Services, Neighborhood House, Hallie Q. Brown Community Center, and Merrick Community Services have partnered to present this Community Discussion Series.
Join us for PART 3 of RACE – THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION, a three-part PBS documentary about race, privilege, policy and justice. Through this discussion series, we will bring people together to reflect on race and culture, understand how our community centers are working to improve the quality of life in St. Paul and Ramsey County, and learn how to can engage more with each other in our communities.
This is a three part series but this event is open to anyone who is interested, even if you didn’t attend the previous events.
This event is free and open to the public but spaces are limited.
Please see the Eventbrite page for more information:
Part 3: THE HOUSE WE LIVE IN
We see how benefits quietly and often invisibly accrue to white people, because of the racialized nature of our laws, courts, customs and perhaps most pertinently, our housing. This episode shows us that until we address the legacy of past discrimination, the dream of equality will remain out of reach.
