A 3 Part Series Event

It is time to talk about race. The Racial Justice Action Team of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) is screening a three-part PBS mini-series, Race: The Power of an Illusion. Each screening is followed by a thoughtful, civil, and honest community dialogue about America’s understandings of race and what it means for Door County. This event is free.

Thursday, September 28 – Episode 1 – The Difference Between Us
Thursday, October 5 – Episode 2 – The Story We Tell
Thursday, October 12 – Episode 3 – The House We Live In

All events are from 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Race isn’t something that is talked about a lot in Door County. Yet, as both a community of increasingly diverse year-round residents, and an international tourist destination attracting people of color from around the world as visitors and employees, Door County can only benefit from a deeper understanding of what race is, what it isn’t, and why it continues to be such a troubling idea in America today. Join the Racial Justice Action Team from UUFDC to explore what race means together.

ABOUT: The Racial Justice Action Team seeks to create a welcoming community for people of color who live, work, and visit in Door County through service, education, and community advocacy. For more information, contact UUFDC at 920-854-7559 or at contact@uufdc.org.
