Greater Anderson Promotes Peace (GAPP) and Anderson Churches for Racial Unity (ACRU) are planning three fall events.
Tuesday, September 21, 7:00 p.m.: We welcome back Dr. Joan Ferrante and students from Northern Kentucky University for another presentation from the Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories (MCRC) Project. The event will feature a new film, I Am White Like You, Right Mom? In this film, a white-appearing mother must explain to her black-appearing daughter that “you’re not white exactly.” The conversation expands and reveals the story of why, in the U.S., parent and child can be labeled as different races and how race invades the family space.
The event takes place on Tuesday, September 21, at 7:00 p.m. (in person) at Anderson Hills United Methodist Church, 7515 Forest Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45255. (Masks are recommended.) Registration is required at https://rightmom.eventbrite.com
Wednesdays, October 20 and 27, 7:00 p.m.: On October 20, Christina Hartlieb, Director of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Walnut Hills, will share stories about the house which was the residence for Lyman Beecher, the president of Lane Seminary, and his family. The following week, on October 27, Ms. Hartlieb will introduce the film, Sons and Daughters of Thunder. The film tells the unforgettable true story of the first-in-the-nation 1834 emancipation debates led by the students at Lane Seminary, including firebrand abolitionist Theodore Weld, and the debates’ effect on young Harriet Beecher’s views of slavery. A virtual interview with the directors will follow the screening.
Locations and registration for these events will be finalized soon. For more information, contact Louise Lawarre at:
