This week Oakland Public Library kicks off a series of events on policing, prisons, racial justice and social change in the United States.
The goals of the series are to foster learning, dialogue, collaboration and action, foregrounding creative, community solutions to racial inequity.
Last Saturday, we kicked off with the documentary film Ferguson: Race and Justice in the U.S. produced by Sweta Vohra of FaultLines at Martin Luther King Jr Library. Following the film, Michael Bell of InPartnership Consulting facilitated a rich and important conversation with attendees.
Over the next few months, we’ll be partnering with community agencies to host other guest speakers, events for parents/children, and book discussions.
