A Candid Conversation on Race

Actions and Detail Panel
Event Information
Please join us as Cleary University, with the support of the Livingston Diversity Council, honors Black History Month by advancing the conversation about race in America.

Race is an important issue that impacts our lives personally. It also shapes who we are as a community. Its effects live not just in what we say, but in the things that we don't have the courage to say. This event will help us to build the skills to have candid conversations about race. We will feature an interactive discussion and a panel including Rochelle Riley, award-winning author and journalist, and Rocky Raczkowski, veteran, entrepreneur, and politician. They represent two different perspectives that will contribute to a vibrant and thoughtful conversation.

A Candid Conversation on Race event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend and participate. Registration is preferred.

During the event, DMJStudio, is hosting an exhibition, Posters on Politics, an exhibit of posters visually depicting politics around the world. Displaying 24 posters touching on some of today's most pressing political subjects. Donna Jackson, the owner of DMJStudio and curator of this exhibit, expresses the need for this exhibit. "Political dynamics are changing not only in America but around the world, and every day we as global citizens are affected by what is happening in our hometowns as well as thousands of miles away. Jackson also says, "that this exhibit shows the global view of politics while providing a platform for all to learn, connect and understand what we all want in our government, policies and for future world citizens.

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. with the event beginning at 11:00 a.m.
