In the second virtual community circle of the Minnesota Humanities Center’s How Can We Breathe series, Elders and Youth will engage in dialogue surrounding America’s civil rights movements and their evolution. In this intergenerational discussion, participants and panelists will explore how present civil rights work is tied to past efforts and how we might spark positive change as we move toward creating a more perfect union.
Participants will be called to join this virtual space to learn, heal, understand, and share. This conversation, centered on the African American experience, will identify strategies and resources advocates and allies for a racially just society can use to ensure that African Americans are fully empowered within our democracy.
Sweet Potato Comfort Pie®, a Minnesota grassroots organization advocating for racial justice, will facilitate the conversations and collaborate with individuals and organizations in several Minnesota cities during the virtual series to provide comfort pies and build community.
