Community dialogue on race at BPL

The Billings Public Library will host a Community Dialogue on Race, a free event inviting community members to hear how people in the Billings’ area still struggle with racism, as well as where there is evidence of progress. The event will feature a culturally diverse panel of residents who will share personal experiences of racial bias as well as ideas on how individuals and institutions can create a more racially equitable society. At the event, attendees may submit written questions to Russell Rowland, the event moderator, and open dialogue will be encouraged. The goal of this event is to present diverse perspectives; invite honest questions and thoughtful answers; boost awareness of the racial climate in current-day Billings; and learn tools to better respond when racism is witnessed or experienced.  

All ages are encouraged to attend this free event to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 6:30-8 p.m. in the Community Room at the Billings Public Library.
