Best-Selling Author Austin Channing Brown will be featured in Virtual Dialogues for Diversity Event
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • September 9, 2020)—Delaware County Community College’s Center for Equity and Social Justice will host its second in a series of Dialogues for Diversity on the topic of Discussing Race in Our Communities, featuring Austin Channing Brown, author of The New York Times bestselling book, I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness (Crown Publishing Group, May 15, 2018), and host and executive producer of the video web series, “The Next Question,” which engages visionaries, leaders and artists in the substantive questions of racial justice.
This second in the College’s Dialogues for Diversity series will explore how people can have discussions about race in our communities that are meaningful and productive. It also will consider how past events shape where people are today and how to move forward during times that feel divisive. This dialogue will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, September 29. It is free and open to the public.
Delaware County Community College’s Center for Equity and Social Justice was created to encourage courageous, respectful community conversations about the sensitive, often controversial issues of racism and social injustice. The Center is under the purview of the College’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The Center’s first event, held July 28, was on the topic of policing in our communities and featured conversations with local police officers and community leaders. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the dialogues are held as webinars.
