A Night with BGIM...a discussion on race, class and life
Writer and blogger, Shay Stewart-Bouley, known to many as Black Girl in Maine will be hosting a conversation on race, class and life. The discussion will be limited to 30 participants.
"perhaps it will to be up to the mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunties (women of the world) to rectify these awful injustices.Years ago it was women who initiated MADD (mothers against drunk driving). Driving drunk was once looked at as a wink, nod, pass. Now it is seen for what it isintolerableand no longer seen as acceptable behavior by sane people."
A reader of my blog left that comment and it made me think, what if several of us got together to talk about race? Too many times, we shy away from the hard discussions because they are uncomfortable. Yet change rarely happens on its own with effort.
After suggesting that a few of us meet to talk about race in America, I was inundated with requests from readers wanting to join in. So I am answering that call by putting together a public forum. For this first discussion, participation is being capped so that the group can engage in an actual dialogue.
