Racial Reckoning: Housing

Racial Reckoning: Housing

At the Frazier History Museum

September 30

7:00PM TO 8:00PM

The Courier Journal, The Frazier History Museum, and the Muhammad Ali Center Present: Racial Reckoning, a four-part conversation series on racial justice that will look at Housing, Education, Policing and Health.

Each program will include community members with their own stories to tell, expert moderators who will guide us through history, policy and present day, and panelists who will help give context to each topic,  provide calls to action and simple steps we can take to help shape a better future for everyone.  This series is curated to break down the causes of social injustices and to encourage creative solutions for amending them.

These programs tie in directly with the work we do, and as partners we can reach more people and tackle the transformative work that needs to be done.

The Courier Journal addressed these issues in-depth with their Beyond Breonna Series and continues to in ongoing stories, The Frazier History Museum will open its West of Ninth: Race, Reckoning and Reconciliation Exhibit in September, and currently on display through February 2022 at the Muhammad Ali Center is its exhibit, Truth Be Told: The Policies That Impacted Black Lives.
