Want to go beyond Black History Month?  Join us for a (free) six part series to better understand the historical roots of our country's current racial divide.  
The Hidden Black History Film/Dialogue series is co-sponsored by Rid Racism Milwaukee and America's Black Holocaust Museum.  

All of the film/dialogue sessions will be held at the Center Street Library (2727 W Fondulac Ave) from 5:15-7:45pm on the following dates:

March 31st, Orientation to Cross-Racial Dialoguing
April 14th, Race - The Power of an Illusion
April 28th, Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property
May 12th, Tales of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North
May 26th, The Black Press: Solders without Swords
June 9th, Tulia, Texas

Led by facilitators trained in safe honest cross-racial dialoguing techniques, participants will watch a film together, then break into small groups for discussion.

To develop a solid interracial learning community, we ask that participants plan to attend all six sessions. If for any reason, you anticipate a problem with this but wish to join, please contact Dr. Fran Kaplan, 414.445.7500.

To register for the FREE educational program, contact or Dr. Fran Kaplan (414.445.7500) by March 16th, 2015. Participation is limited to 30 in an intentionally mixed group in terms of race, ethnicity, and age.
