Each program will include community members with their own stories to tell, expert moderators who will guide us through history, policy, and present day, and panelists who will help give context to each topic, providing calls to action and steps we can take to help shape a better future for everyone. This series is curated to break down the causes of social injustices and to encourage creative solutions for amending them.
These programs tie in directly with our individual and collective missions, and as partners we can reach more people and tackle the transformative work that needs to be done.
The Courier Journal addressed these issues in depth in its “Beyond Breonna” series and continues to in ongoing stories. The Frazier History Museum will open its West of Ninth: Race, Reckoning, and Reconciliation exhibition in September. And the Muhammad Ali Center has curated an exhibition, Truth Be Told: The Policies That Impacted Black Lives, that is on display now through February 2022.
Courier Journal, Frazier History Museum, and the Muhammad Ali Center Present: Racial Reckoning, a four-part conversation series on racial justice that will look at Housing, Education, Policing and Health.
