From the South Orange Maplewood Community Coalition on Race:
The Coalition on Race’s Coffee House Discussion topic for Black History Month focuses on The New York Times 1619 Project essay Myths about physical racial differences were used to justify slavery – and are still believed by doctors today written by Linda Villarosa, writer, educator, and New York Times contributor.
Join us to discuss the article, to learn more about racial differences and similarities and to privately take the Race Literacy Quiz to see how your beliefs stack up with the experts. Information will be shared through presentation and short videos followed by facilitated small group discussions to deepen our understanding and appreciation for different points of view. RSVP is requested for space and materials planning, but not required to attend.
