On April 28th, CBF MS will be sponsoring this Racial Discourse Symposium hosted by the Oates Institute. The event will take place at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum from 3:00pm-5:00pm.
Oates Institute is offering an online symposium, An Interracial Dialogue, an in-depth examination of challenges faced by caregivers in all kinds of settings. The online symposium experience includes two documentaries, a discussion between the two documentary producers, a Question & Answer session, a panel discussion, and a three-week collaborative learning experience based on Yvette Johnson’s book. The focus of the symposium will be on practical ways faith groups, spiritual caregivers, and others can participate in the transformation of attitudes and behaviors in relation to racial issues. Prior to the symposium, participants will have an opportunity to view both documentaries.
