On-Demand Video Series: Racism: Challenging Perceptions Progress and Promises: Systemic Racism
Mon, January 23 | OPEN HOURS
In a four-part discussion series by VPM, Racism: Challenging Perceptions explores the social, cultural and economic impact of racism on our community. Through conversations with local experts and leaders, we look at the disparities racism creates within our systems: education, wealth building and housing.
Enjoy this clip from season 2, a year following the brutal death of George Floyd and the onset of a pandemic that shed light on racial disparities, we will discuss what changes, if any, have occurred in how communities view and value Black lives. This discussion will include the founder of the Richmond Racial Equity Essays, Ebony Walden and Dr. Wes Bellamy, Political Science Department Chair at Virginia State University.
Please register for the video by Sunday at 8 pm. ONEplace will email you a link to the video Monday morning to watch in your space and at your convenience. Contact ON[email protected] if you have any questions.
