Event description

Description

This month, “The Community Table” will use Dr. Ibram Kendi’s “Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America,” the 2016 National Book Award winner for Nonfiction as a starting point for a broader exploration of how our ideas – and our histories – shape us. Through a curated series of video interviews, we’ll acquaint participants with the themes of Dr. Kendi’s book, and in small group conversations, we’ll look for the ways our experiences have shaped us, and the ways we’re shaping the experiences of others.

“The Community Table,” our bi-monthly community conversation series, plants civil conversations in the public sphere around issues of culture, diversity and public policy. Each month, we explore a broad range of topics with authors and experts. Then, we’ll break into small groups for facilitated conversations that take a deeper dive into those topics. The series aims to engage the community in meaningful conversations about the important cultural and political questions of the moment and to foster understanding and respect for and across our differences.
