Event Navigation

Race is cultural not biological – yet the health, economic, and policy consequence are very real.

Join us from your own home as we explore these realities with a screening via ZOOM of the award-winning, three-part documentary RACE – The Power of an Illusion. Each week we will explore a new segment (about 50 minutes long) and follow with a lively discussion. Discussions will be led by Dr. Michaela Howells, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at UNCW and will provide opportunities to ask questions and build a deeper understanding of this timely topic.

We’ll meet Wednesday September 30, October 7 & 14 from 5:30 – 7:30. No reservation necessary. You are welcome to join for one or all three evenings! Thank you for helping us spread the word.

Wednesday September 30 at 5:30 pm: Episode 1 – The Difference Between Us
Wednesday October 7 at 5:30 pm: Episode 2 – The Story We Tell
Wednesday October 14 at 5:30 pm: Episode 3 – The House We Live
