Community Conversations: Traveling While Black – The Green Book Story

Thursday, September 28, 2023
Doors: 7pm | Performance: 7pm
Accompanying the TRAVELING WHILE BLACK installation and Virtual Reality experience, is a series of 8 free “Community Conversations” – moderated discussions exploring both historic and present barriers to full participation faced by Blacks and members of other marginalized communities as they “travel” through everyday life. These are stand-alone events, and one does not have to partake in the VR event to attend these. Come to one or come to them all!

Edward Bailey (Bethel AME Church), Derek Smith (Founder & President, African American Cultural Alliance of Lancaster), Dr. Tom Ryan (President & CEO, Lancaster History), Danielle Kepperling (Executive Director, Historic Preservation Trust)

Moderated by Lenwood Sloan
These 7:00 PM FREE events all take place in the Ware Center Salon.
