Community discussion continues March 21 after “Racial Taboo” event
by BRUCE SEAMAN
The “Racial Taboo” movie presentation and following discussion on March 7 was hugely successful as the Klein Center at CF was packed to standing room only with over 300 people attending, most of whom remained to participate in small group discussions. The picture above shows only one corner of the room during group discussions.
Click here to read the article in the Star Banner about the event. (We don’t know why the Racial Harmony Task Force is noted at the end of the article; they’re certainly a worthwhile group but they had nothing to do with this event.)
Among the attendees were School Superintendent George Tomyn, School Board member Bobby James, Deputy School Superintendent Theresa Boston-Ellis, County Commissioner Earl Arnett, County Attorney Guy Minter, and Ocala Police Chief Greg Graham.
Whether or not you were with us or not for our “Racial Taboo” event, please join us for our next film and conversation on Monday, March 21st at 7 pm at Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living, 1009 NE 28th Avenue, Ocala.
To spark the conversation, we will be viewing the first in the PBS series,
”The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross” with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
Subsequent events will be scheduled at sites throughout the county.
