"A Difficult Dialogue" Race. OutRage! Redemption? A Dialogue on the Virginia Racial Controversy | Chaplain's Office

What does it mean for race relations in the United States that political leaders in Virginia have admitted to wearing blackface in their past? Is this situation different from a representative in Congress asking in an interview “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization – how did that language become offensive?”—or the view expressed after Charlottesville that there was no moral difference between those who opposed and those who advocated white nationalist hatred at a race rally turned deadly? The Dialogue Center and the MLK Celebration Committee are partnering to host a “difficult dialogue” event so that members of the Lehigh community can express their thoughts about these headline events involving race in America. Your viewpoint is welcomed in the safe space of the Dialogue Center. Dialogue opened by Dr. Dahlia Hylton, Director, Multicultural Affairs Dr. Lloyd Steffen, University Chaplain, Professor Religion Studies Wednesday, February 20, 2019 12:00 Noon The Dialogue Center 661 Taylor Street All Welcome Refreshments, including pizza, will be served.
