I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness


Tuesdays, 7:30pm-9pm

Using her book and video series we are able to sit under the work and leadership of Austin Channing Brown to examine the ways we are not yet aware of our own participation in racism and how to move toward meaningful action against racist systems, structures and assumptions in our lives. Whether you consider yourself well-along in the journey or fairly new to the conversation, we will all find relevant challenges and practical guidance and tools for the work ahead.

Location: 336 Roupe Ave, Pittsburgh, PA
