A Conversation Worth Having: So You Want To Talk About Race

A Conversation Worth Having: Arkansas PBS presents “So You Want To Talk About Race” with Ijeoma Oluo and Dr. Cherisse Jones-Branch

“If a conversation is hard, it’s probably one worth having.”

Join us for A Conversation Worth Having: a part of our Civil Rights & Social Change Collection.

Every Wednesday night at 7pm CST we screen a virtual collection of talks, podcasts, films and documentaries designed to educate, enlighten, and encourage empathy surrounding the struggles and hardships facing the African-American community. February’s lineup focuses on three moments from Arkansas’s black history often forgotten, and a special presentation with Arkansas PBS.

On Wednesday, February 10, CALS Ron Robinson Theater joins Arkansas PBS to present “So You Want To Talk About Race,” a conversation between New York Times best-selling author Ijeoma Oluo and Dr. Cherisse Jones-Branch of Arkansas State University, recorded at the 2018 Arkansas Literary Festival. Dr. Branch will join founders of the Arkansas Peace & Justice Memorial Movement Kwami & Clarice Abdul-Bey for a LIVE discussion and Q&A following the screening. Viewers will also have the opportunity to contribute to the conversation and pose questions to the speakers during the broadcast, and a discussion guide is available from Arkansas PBS.
