Join us on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 2:30 pm in the Woodbury Room for a screening of The Story We Tell. This is the next event in a film & discussion series which began in the fall of 2014 and continues to look at issues of race. A facilitated discussion will be held after the screening.
The Story We Tell is an eye-opening tale of how deep social inequalities came to be rationalized as natural – deflecting attention from the social practices and public policies that benefited whites at the expense of others. We will look at how this story continues to affect us and our society today. (This is Episode #2 inRace: The Power of an Illusion from PBS, California Newsreel.) Free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Janet Ryan at 413/259-3223. This film series is co-sponsored by the Jones Library and The Coming Together Project.
