We think it's time we had a frank community conversation about how we are doing in our hometown on issues of race and founding ideals. In partnership between Leon County and the Village Square - as part of our continuing award-winning series "The Club of Honest Citizens" - we are delighted to bring you a very special evening, featuring actor Keith Hamilton Cobb.
In the wake of tragic events in communities of color and the repercussions of the disturbingly polarizing 2016 election, we can’t quietly wish this were someone else’s problem. So we’re going to continue to talk about how we can face it, own it, and change it.
It's a big promise our founders made, and we're going to have to get a little uncomfortable if we're going to rise to it. We say we're up to the challenge.
(Dinner - because this will probably make us hungry - is on us.)
Here's our ask to you: Help us continue the effort to make this series something real in our hometown. Please bring a friend who's racially, ethnically or ideologically different than you. And spend some time between now and then stretching to include more diversity in your life.
Forget the horrible national political "conversation" on race (if you can even call it a conversation). We get to decide everything about how we live in our hometown. It starts here, it starts now, and it starts with us.
