Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum presents Crucial Conversations: Race and Racism in Our Community - The Past
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.
In this discussion, the museum aims to place race relations and systemic racism in Dallas in historical context. Dallas has a long history of racial inequity and division in education, housing, policing and other sectors that is not often discussed. They will bring this history to light and acknowledge the longstanding structures and policies that still affect communities of color today. We cannot move forward until we understand our historical foundations.
