Film Discussion: Race: The Difference Between Us (Candid Conversations Wichita)

View all events in: June 2017 | South Central

June 12, 2017, 6:00 PM CT

The concept of race is much more complicated than it seems on the surface. Where did the idea of race come from? Is there a biological basis for the differences we observe? In part one of the acclaimed PBS documentary series, Race: The Power of Illusion, learn more about how we think about race and challenge our longstanding notions of personal differences. A facilitated discussion will follow the film.

Part of Candid Conversations, a city-wide, collaborative series of events in Wichita that looks at how race functions in society and how policing affects minority communities; preserves the voices of Wichita's communities of color; and encourages community members to tell their stories.
