Clyde Ford: Let's Talk About Race


Bellingham City Club and Humanities Washington invite the community to an engaging conversation with Clyde Ford, a member of the 2019-2020 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. About this program: Racism thrives in silence. Itís when we stop talking to one another about our beliefs that prejudices go unchallenged, and the gap between us widens. Yet race is one of the most difficult topics to discuss in American society. If we are to heal many of our countryís social, economic, and political divides, we canít afford to avoid the conversation. With warmth and openness, renowned author and professor Clyde Ford leads a discussion on race in modern-day America with a heavy emphasis on audience participation. Meant for people of all races, participants will come away with tools for engaging in conversations about race in an honest, transparent, and meaningful way. Though ambitious, this talk aims to make a difference in bridging and healing the racial divide.
