Event description

Description

Highline Public Schools is pleased to invite all Highline staff to: Tell Me The Truth: Exploring the Heart OF CROSS-RACIAL CONVERSATIONS. An intimate conversation between two friends followed by community dialogue.

Educators across Highline strive to develop and strengthen our collective capacity to work for racial justice through education. This session supports this work by providing an opportunity to learn from two women leading critical dialogue, and is part of broader effort to provide learning opportunities about racial justice.

Please register soon -- seating is limited.

What others are saying about this event:

These two outstanding activists should have a podcast, a TV show, a workshop on how to talk about race - any conceivable bullhorn with which to bring their model of thoughtful, honest dialogue to a nation sorely in need of it. Their conversations model the one that all Americans must have: the one where we confront our racial demons together and work in partnership toward a united community.” Anna Gooding-Call, Nevins Memorial Library librarian

“Shay and Debby bring a truthfulness to the conversation about race, privilege and cross racial friendship in a unique way. They have not only given me the voice I need to move forward as a Black woman in this work, they opened up an ongoing dialogue to an entire community.” Nikki Moore, Marblehead Racial Justice Team

“Shay and Debby are opening the lines of communication around topics that our society desperately needs to discuss. Their dialogues raise relatable experiences which, when examined from more than one perspective, highlight the need for interaction, communication, and understanding of the experiences of different people in our culture.” Lorien Lake-Corral, University of Maine
