RACE: Let’s Talk About It! 2nd in Series

Description: Three Manchester-area churches—Concordia Lutheran Church, Emanuel Lutheran Church and St. Mary's Episcopal Church— are collaborating to sponsor “Let’s Talk About It,” a three -part documentary film series and discussion on racism in America.

The program will be shown at both churches at time shown below.
Noon at St. Mary’s (brown bag lunch)
6:30 p.m. at Concordia

The programs are open to all members of the community.

The series kicked off on Sept. 26 with a screening of a 2008 film titled “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North,”

Participants will view seven very short films that are part of a New York Times series called “A Conversation on Race.” This series of short films features everyday people as they discuss issues of race and identity in America.

There will be time for reflection and discussion after each film.

Titles to be screened on October 24 are:
A Conversation With My Black Son (5 min.)
A Conversation About Growing Up Black (5 min.)
A Conversation With White People on Race (5 min.) A Conversation With Police on Race (7 min.)

The Nov. 28 films will be announced soon.
