Forum on Structural Racism in the Schools

Bridgewater Citizens for Civility and Respect (BCCR), formed four years ago to promote civil discourse and respectful behavior among all citizens, is sponsoring its second, yearly series of forums on relevant topics of widespread interest. The forums, also supported by the Bridgewater Public Library, are entitled “Being Neighborly: Building Common Ground,” and focus on respectful sharing of differing/diverging views on the topic at hand. 

On Monday, February 10th, the third forum of the season will take place, with co-sponsorship from Bridgewater State University and the National Association for Multicultural Education. The topic is: FROM ME TO WE: REFRAMING WHITE-CENTRIC POWER IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Prof. Mary Earick, from Plymouth State University, will lecture, lead a panel discussion, and promote audience involvement as we look at the issues and challenges underlying racial inclusion and diversity in our communities, especially as they impact public schools.

The forum begins at 6:30, and will be held at the Moakley Center Auditorium, Bridgewater State University. All are welcome.
