Thursday, February 27
Starts at 4:00 PM
The second in a series of programs will take place at Heartland Community College on Thursday, February 27 at 4:00 p.m. in the Community Commons Building, Room 1406 . Heartland Community College, along with representatives of the Bloomington-Normal NAACP, 100 Black Men, Black Lives Matter, and others will host a discussion on the lasting barriers and the lack of equitable access to educational opportunities for minority and marginalized populations. Inspired by the exhibit, Challenges Choices & Change: A Community in Conflict, this program series (January through April) will provide a brief introduction to local stories featured in the exhibit and expand into facilitated small group discussions on the chosen themes. All ages are encouraged to participate in any or all of the planned discussions. The series is being held in collaboration with Not it Our Town (NIOT), Heartland Community College, YWCA McLean County, and Normal Human Relations Commission.
