Continuing Conversations On Race

Last spring– after “White Lives Matter” flyers were distributed in town — a few groups sponsored a community conversation on race.

The overflow crowd did not agree on everything. But many attendees said they’d like a follow-up meeting to discuss what life is like for African Americans in Westport and similar communities.

TEAM-Westport-logo2That 2nd conversation on race is set for this Sunday (October 18, 3 p.m., Westport Library). It’s organized by TEAM Westport, the Library and Westport/Weston Interfaith Clergy.

The event is headlined by Dr. Susan Toliver, chair of the sociology department at Iona College and an expert on multiculturalism. It includes a panel, moderated by Rev. Alison Patton of Saugatuck Congregational Church.

The ideas expressed on Sunday may be difficult for some.

Ignoring them, though, is far tougher
