The Many Faces of Newton: Our Students Speak Out About Race and Racism

January 24 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Free

Believe it or not, racism exists in Newton! In 2017 a group of high school Students of Color performed original theatre pieces they had written as part of The Monologue Project. Join them for an eye-opening experience as they take to the stage to speak out about their experiences of race and racism in our city. A Q and A moderated by Beau Stubblefield-Tave of the Center for Culturally Fluent Leadership will follow. Refreshments will be served. Cosponsors include:

  • Center for Culturally Fluent Leadership
  • Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries
  • First Unitarian Universalist Society in Newton
  • Newton Department of Senior Services
  • Newton Health and Human Services/Youth Services
  • Newton Human Rights Commission
  • Newton Theatre Company

This program is supported by a grant from the Foundation for Racial, Ethnic and Religious Harmony.
