Saturday, Dec 9, 3PM-6PM, WHYY Inc, 150 N 6th St
Join A Dream Deferred for their first of four panel discussions, A Series of Uncomfortable Conversations: Breaking the Myth of Meritocracy. Local scholars, activists and community leaders will take an honest look at the trauma and profound loss created in communities of color by consistent exclusion and lack of access to resources through systemic methods such as redlining.
This panel series is part of A Dream Deferred and Philadelphia in Flux. The goal is to have real dialogue that works towards dismantling cycles that result from broken history, fostering greater understanding, and ultimately greater empathy.
There will be a reception with light refreshments and music following the discussion. Space is limited. Please arrive early as this event will be first come, first serve.
