Embracing important conversations in rural Iowa
on race and racism


FRIDAY, MAY 7

12:00 - 1:00 PM

Dr. Kesho Scott

Associate Professor of American Studies and Sociology

Grinnell College

 

 

Conversations on race and racism can be difficult and uncomfortable, perhaps even more so in rural Iowa. However, Dr. Kesho Scott, Associate Professor of American Studies and Sociology at Grinnell College, is embracing the conversation and encouraging others to do likewise. Dr. Scott will join us for Intersections/Crossroads to talk about how she approaches the conversation and may even share some “aha moments” she has witnessed in those conversations. Join us May 7 to hear what she has learned about Iowa and Iowans as well as what work we need to be doing in these times. And perhaps a takeaway will be how we can each use Dr. Scott’s approach in our own hard conversations with others regarding race, racism, and ultimately becoming anti-racist.

 

Please register in advance for Intersections/Crossroads. A confirmation email including the link to join will be sent to you once you register. All are welcome to attend.
