The Champaign Community Coalition invites the public to attend a free screening of “Racial Taboo” on Sunday, March 12, in the Presby dining room at McKinley Foundation. Doors open at 2 p.m.; the 53-minute film will start at 2:30, followed by small-group discussions and a free dinner (details below). The documentary examines America’s racial history and how it continues to affect today’s society.
The film’s producer, Brian Grimm, will be available to have conversations over a free dinner with folks after the small-group discussions, but you must make a reservation by Monday, Mar. 6 with Jennifer Wetzel. Dinner reservations are limited to the first 100 people who email Jennifer.
Champaign Community Coalition is a network of stakeholders working together to improve the lives of youth and families in the Champaign-Urbana area. Facilitator Tracy Parsons says they want to help the public tackle difficult questions about racial issues. With this screening the coalition hopes to continue promoting open, honest community dialogue.
