Courageous Conversations about Race Discussion Group

1080 Old Post Road, Fairfield, CT

website: fairfieldpubliclibrary.org

The “Courageous Conversations about Race Discussion Group” evolved from a program of the same name that ran last spring at the Library. Facilitators Susan Stengel and Tanya Livingston wanted to keep this important conversation going. Topics concerning race relations in the United States and how we can adjust our own attitudes and behavior to promote race unity in our community will be discussed.  Participants will decide on the focus for each discussion. The first session will be devoted to reflections on “Race: The Power of an Illusion” – the idea that race as a concept has no biological validity, but was created as a social construct to justify the behavior of whites toward blacks in the nineteenth century. This group will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month, with the first meeting on September 26 at 7:00 pm in the Jennings Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.  Additional meetings are October 24 and November 28. Registration is requested.

Susan Stengel has many years of experience as a teacher, principal and college professor, including workshop design and facilitation. Tanya Livingston is an IT project manager for a local financial institution and an advocate for unity, equality and social justice. They both have a passionate interest in promoting racial harmony through education and dialogue.

All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free.  To register, or for more information on these and other programs, visit us online at:  fairfieldpubliclibrary.org, or call 203-256-3160. Follow the Fairfield Public Library on Twitter @fairfieldpublib and Facebook @fairfieldlibrary.

45 Grove Street, New Canaan, CT 06840 USA

website: goo.gl/c4ShHp

Join Halo and Healthful Direction to see the award-winning documentary HEAL.

This film helps us discover that we are not victims of disease and our bodies are not failing us, rather our bodies are designed to heal and our thoughts beliefs and emotions can have a powerful effect on our ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all. Through inspiring and emotional stories, we find out what works, what doesn't, and why.

Doors open at 6:30pm for mingling with Halo and Healthful Direction. Movie starts at 7:00pm.

Tickets MUST be purchased in advance!
