Community Conversations about Race: A moderated panel discussion

December 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us on Tuesday, December 4, at 6:30pm for a panel discussion exploring race reconciliation and how to engage in difficult conversations about race in your community, the importance of representing African American experiences, and the power of media imagery on perceptions of race issues. After the panel discussion, there will be time for audience questions. The panel will be moderated by Alana Simmons, Project Coordinator in the Division of Student Life, Student Success & Inclusion at Emory & Henry College, and panelists will include Dan Gray (Be the Bridge Bristol), Tina McDaniel (YWCA of Northeast TN and Southwest VA), Sam Page (Applied Theater student, Emory & Henry College), and Danianese Woods (Mass Communications, Emory & Henry College).

This program is free and open to the public; it is offered in conjunction with the special exhibit For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It has been adapted and is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance. For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights was organized by The Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in partnership with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution.
