RETHINKING RACE: Black, White and Beyond

Feb. 22 - March 5, 2021

A virtual forum in which race and race-related issues can be discussed, examined, and hopefully, better understood through conversations, film, and speakers. Rethinking Race hopes to engage the public with important topics such as diversity in the workplace and awareness of issues and culture.
