ADORE Discussion with Optional Potluck

March 14, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In the ADORE (A Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity) forum at Davies Memorial UU Church, we discuss race relations and the American way of life with the aim of
exploring our feelings on racial issues and learning more about ourselves and others

Optional potluck at 6:30 p.m.

Discussion begins at 7:30 p.m.

Discussion Topic: Winter-time race awareness
encounters and current events

Open Discussion: Participants are encouraged to share and
discuss events or situations that prompted them to reflect
upon their own racial identity.

Topics to be offered by the facilitator for discussion

Give us your thoughts regarding:

a. The racial identity to assign to Santa Clause;

b. The jury’s decision in the Florida trial of Michael Dunn
in the killing of Jordan Davis, a black teenager, who was
playing loud music;

c. The moral or immoral trend in U.S. culture as evidenced
by those pursuing the legalization of marijuana and the
restoration of voting rights to ex-felons;

d. The arguments favoring replacing more public schools
with charter schools and the racial considerations in-
volved;

Where, when, and who prompted the then alien (and wrong-
headed) idea that human slavery was immoral?

What was your take-away from the PBS television 3 part se-
ries on African American History that was recently shown in
Oct and Nov of 2013 and in Feb 2014?

Facilitator: Chris Bell, (301-856-2775)
