Conversations on Race: Growing Through Our Discomfort
The South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race is hosting its annual Conversations on Race forum on Wednesday, May 30th, 7:30 pm at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel. This forum is a community dialogue about race-related issues facing our community. The evening will begin with brief talks by two community members—Barbara Heisler and Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad—who have expertise on intentional integration as well as civil rights and African American studies. Please join us for this important discussion about how we face race and relationships in our towns.
