Building the Beloved Community: How Everyone Can Play Their Part

“Our goal is to create a beloved community. and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Ali Michael returns to her hometown of Mt. Lebanon for a discussion focused on building and sustaining a healthy multiracial community. In this community-wide event, Dr. Michael will share stories from her childhood and her life as a parent, researcher, and anti-racism educator. “Racial competence is a skills-based competence; it can be learned,” says Michael. “Sustained race inquiry is meant to lead to anti-racist classrooms, positive racial identities, and a restoration of the wholeness of spirit and community that racism undermines.”

Join the South Hills Community for a discussion with Dr. Michael on Sunday, February 20, 6:30 pm at Mount Lebanon High School, 155 Cochran Road, Mount Lebanon. PA 15228

Masks required for all participants.
