In June 2020, Portsmouth’s City Council passed a Resolution declaring Portsmouth a Racial Justice Municipality. What does that mean to you?
Join the Portsmouth Public Library a year on, for a three-week online conversation series on racial justice in our community and beyond. This series is co-hosted with Black Heritage Trail New Hampshire and sponsored in part by Kennebunk Savings, with additional support from Piscataqua Savings Bank.
We will offer three panel conversations on racial justice featuring Seacoast leaders, educators, business owners and activists. Panels will be moderated by library staff, with time for Q&A so members of our community can chime in.
These events are free and open to all. Register and join the discussion!
Note: the library has made some changes to this series. In consultation with our racial justice programming partners, we have decided to focus on our local community and not include an outside speaker, at this time. So we will not be holding the interview with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson nor the conversation about his book as part of this series. The panel discussions will continue as planned.
