MJC Presents- Black in America: A Continuing Conversation

MJC invites the community to Black in America: A Continuing Conversation

The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to Black in America: A Continuing Conversation on Thursday, November 3, at 7 p.m. in the Cafeteria of the Student Center on MJC’s East Campus, 435 College Avenue, Modesto. The free event is part of the CEP Fall Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.

Based on a number of questions from the audience at the spring semester’s event, this discussion will look more deeply into the problems between law enforcement and diverse communities by focusing on historical and cultural factors that impact current tensions.

Guest speakers from both law enforcement and the community will share research-based historical and cultural information and allow for audience discussion throughout the event in small groups with trained dialogue facilitators.

For more information on MJC’s Civic Engagement Project or the Fall Film and Lecture Series, contact Jason Wohlstadter, professor of English, at>.
