Join us for an evening of virtual conversation about advancing racial equity in our community. We are excited to host this dynamic and thought-provoking event. You don’t want to miss it!
Listen and learn from educator, poet, and New York Times bestselling author, Clint Smith and then participate in a discussion with local experts specializing in African American history in our area.
Clint Smith is a staff writer at The Atlantic. He is the author of the narrative nonfiction book, How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America, which was a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and the poetry collection Counting Descent, which won the 2017 Literary Award for Best Poetry Book from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association and was a finalist for an NAACP Image Award.
During this event you’ll also have an opportunity to hear from some esteemed local speakers including our spoken word poet, Maven Gardner and the founding and acting Director of the University of Washington’s Center for Communication, Difference and Equity, Dr. Ralina Joseph.
At the close of the event you will have the opportunity to make an additional gift and join a United Way giving community. Proceeds from this event will support The Black Community Building Collective.
