Film & Discussion Series: Race: The Power of an Illusion: The Difference Between Us

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the next event in this ongoing film and discussion series that may educate you, touch your heart, and inspire you to action to help dismantle racism.

This screening will feature episode 1 of the powerful series Race:  The Power of an Illusion.  Episode 1, entitled "The Difference Between Us", examines the contemporary science - including genetics - that challenges our common sense assumptions that human beings can be bundled into three or four fundamentally different groups according to their physical traits.

A brief discussion follows the screening.

Free & open to the public.

Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.
