Event description
FOREWORD is CPL's first DEI Edutainment Book Club & Docuseries Program that combines basic DEI education and entertainment.

About this event

CPL is launching its first in-person DEI Edutainment Book Club & Docuseries Program, FOREWORD, in association with the DiverseCITY Cleveland Program.

This series is an opportunity to expose fundamental DEI education through the combined use of entertainment and teaching.

Our time together will include, 6 in-person workshops from 6-7:30 PM, watching an episode of a docuseries, followed by a live discussion in a safe environment with an executive DEI coach from Inspiring Change, LLC, to unpack each episode to further understand equality for all.

FOREWORD Series #1

Colin in Black and White addresses Black culture, hair, self-expression, music, white privilege, systemic and systematic racism, microaggressions, beauty standards, and police. As we unpack each episode, we will tackle the obstacles of race, class, and culture. We will talk about what made you laugh, what made you uncomfortable, and what upset or moved you, all while incorporating the underpinning of DEI throughout our time together.
