- Authentic Dialogues: Talking About Racism and Taking a Stand
October 16, 2018 - Camden Public Library
View Facebook page
This interactive session is designed to look critically at racism in our communities and our nation by examining the roots of white supremacy and how the past impacts our present. A key goal will be teaching, sharing, and learning practical tools for working in our own communities to combat racism and to start conversations on addressing racism and difference in predominantly white spaces. This session is a mixture of lecture and small-group work, which will allow participants to deepen their knowledge of racism in 2018, examine their own biases, and learn techniques for starting conversations on racism and how to be an effective ally.
Elms of Camden is proud to be a co-sponsor of this event.
Born and raised on a combination of big-city attitude and Midwestern sensibility as a Chicago native, Shay Stewart-Bouley, also known as Black Girl in Maine (or BGIM), had to learn a bit of Yankee ingenuity when she relocated to Maine in 2002. After a brief foray into education, Shay bridged her socially minded work from Chicago (working with the homeless) to Maine by working with low-income and at-risk youth in Southern Maine, and she is currently the Executive Director of Community Change Inc., a 50-year-old anti-racism organization based in Boston that organizes and educates for racial equity.
