The 2016 Danita Branam Dialogue

November 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Intersections International for our 3rd Annual Danita Branam Dialogue, an ongoing and ever-deepening conversation about race and privilege.

Scheduled for one week after the presidential election, this year’s theme is: “How I See It…”

The evening examines the current state of polarization in our land through perspectives ranging from law enforcement personnel to #blacklivesmatter activists. How do these diverse viewpoints shape our understanding of the pressing social issues of the day? What does our current reality hold for us in light of the recently completed Presidential election? How does the media represent and misrepresent these social dynamics? What are three things we can do—individually and collectively—as agents of healing, in this post-election season?

Moderated by Intersections’ Deputy Director Farid Johnson, the 2016 Danita Branam Dialogue features a diverse panel of visionary experts and committed community leaders who share their insights as the foundation for a broader discussion.

Facilitators include:
Lt. Tyrone Williams; Commander, Montclair NJ Police Department
Corporal Justin Criner; Lubbock Police Department, TX
Merle McGee; Chief Program Officer, YWCA of the City of NY
Donovan Christie; New York City actor

Join us as we continue the vital conversation about how America continues to wrestle with its history of systemic racism that created today’s divide. The Danita Branam Dialogue provides a forum where ideas can be shared and a construct for progressive positive action can be created.

There is no cost for admission. A free will offering will be taken.
