YWCA's Tell me the Truth: Exploring the Heart of Cross-Racial Conversation

In 1963, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote from his jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama, "I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice..." 

Join the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester's Center for Racial Equity this MLK Day to learn how cross-racial conversation and collaboration lead to racial equity and the achievement of Dr. King's dream of Beloved Communities. Through "Tell Me the Truth," racial justice advocates and educators Shay Stewart-Bouley (Black) and Debby Irving (White) will share racism’s impact on their lives and how cross-racial conversation has been instrumental in their own understanding of 21st-century racial dynamics. They’ll also help audience members understand how interpersonal social patterns hinder organizations from living up to their own ideals for diversity. This program is presented in partnership with support from the Westchester Martin Luther King, Jr. Institute for Nonviolence. 

Attendance is free.

Registration is required.
