Hallie Q. Brown Community Center, Neighborhood House, Keystone Community Services and Merrick Community Services have partnered to present this Community Discussion Series.
Join us for three-part PBS documentary and discussion 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 engage more with each other in our communities.
Your active participation in this series will to help us all confront our myths about race and explore the causes of inequities within our communities. This event is free and open to the public but spaces are limited, reservations required.
RACE: The Power of an Illusion
Episode 1: The Difference Between Us
