“Mothers to Mothers” Event Encourages Open Discussion with Sons about Interactions with the Law

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (July 16, 2015) — In commemoration of the first anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, the Muhammad Ali Center is hosting Mothers to Mothers on August 9th at 2:00 p.m. The event, inspired by a program developed by The Ethics Project and the YWCA of St. Louis, will initiate a conversation among local Louisville mothers about “the talk” with their sons of color regarding interactions with law enforcement. School-aged children are invited to participate in an art-making program with a local educator during the adult-oriented discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Reservations can be made at the Muhammad Ali Center website.
