A Conversation About Racism: Staying Curious, Moving Forward, and Being Part of the Solution

       A Community Workshop, Friday, June 7 at 6 pm

This workshop is designed to encourage an open and thoughtful discussion between black and white people and how we can learn to appreciate and understand experiences and perspectives different from our own. At the center of the conversation, moderated by Allen Davis, will be the experiences of three local black community members, Jeanne Hall, Richard Hall, and Gloria Matlock.

Jeanne Hall has worked as a merchandiser for American Greeting Cards and as Assistant to the Curator of Anthropology and Archaeology at the Springfield Science Museum. She has a long involvement with social and racial justice projects.

Richard Hall has had a career in Aerospace and Communications and his final project was working as a Technical Support Manager on the Big Dig in Boston.

Gloria Matlock is a member of Racial Justice Rising, a performing artist, an educator, and a writer. She has explored the interwoven fabrics that hold communities together. Through workshops and panels, she has challenged audiences to articulate their truths, to enable constructive communication and healing of biases. With observations drawn from years of experience and deep roots in the Western Mass area, Matlock seeks to foster an empathetic approach.
