“Black Lives Matter,” and “All Lives Matter,” are phrases we hear in our community.

Why do we have differing opinions of these phrases?

What are we really talking about?

On Tuesday, March 9th at 6:30pm, the Peterborough Town Library and partners at Franklin Pierce University will host a brave conversation about race and how it impacts our lives. The conversation will be hosted using the Zoom platform and moderated by PTL staff and other trained facilitators.

Attendees are asked to watch a short TED talk with Baratunde Thurston and read one article by Jeremy Dowsett before the discussion. This should take you no more than 35 minutes or so to prepare.

The online conversation will offer an affinity group for BIPOC. An affinity group is a designated space for people who share an identity. BIPOC means Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

All are welcome to the conversation and a special invitation has been extended to the Franklin Pierce community. To register for the program, please visit https://forms.gle/cxMwYRf6RygRw4yEA

The conversation is funded in part by the Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries grant which is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).
