Great Schools Partnership (GSP) is hosting our third Let’s Talk: Dessert and Discussion event.
Local educators are invited to join us for a viewing of episode 2 of RACE – The Power of an Illusion, a three-part PBS documentary about race, privilege, policy, and justice. Episode 2: The Story We Tell, highlights the history and evolution of “race” in America.
We hope this discussion series will provide a safe and supportive space for educators to delve into discussions about race, racism, and culture. Additionally, we hope that these discussions will lead to change in the lives of the educators who attend as well as the lives of the students they serve.
The event is free and open to anyone who is interested, even if you didn’t attend a previous event. Space is limited so please register in advance.
