Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum presents Crucial Conversations: Race and Racism in Our Community - Starting the Conversation
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum will present a conversation between Kamilah Collins, President of Collins Collaborations and experienced advocate for equitable practices and inclusive communication, and Mary Pat Higgins, President and CEO of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum.
In this session, they will discuss the “why” behind this series and how we approach the conversation as a museum. We will aim to establish a common knowledge base and define terms related to racism, systemic racism, bias, and equity. The information provided in this session will lay the groundwork and serve as a point of entry for the conversations we will have throughout the series.
Crucial Conversations is a four-part program series on race and racism in our community. Through this series of virtual public programs, the museum hopes to foster an increased understanding of racism in both a historical and contemporary context and an awareness of concrete steps that can be taken to disrupt systemic racism.
