    Free Community Program - Courageous Conversations Posted 10/22/18

    Courageous Conversations (see attached flyer)

    November 29, 2018 at 7PM

    Campolindo Performing Arts Center

    Why Examine and Address Race? Race matters-in society and in our schools. It is critical for educators to address racial issues in order to uncover personal and institutional biases that prevent all students, and especially students of color, from reaching their fullest potential.  COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION™ serves as the essential strategy for school systems, organizations, students, parents and community leaders to address racial disparities through safe, authentic and effective cross-racial dialogue.  Presented by Dr. Lori A. Watson.  Dr. Watson grew up in Greenville Mississippi, where she was profoundly influenced by the leaders and educators in her family. Her father was the proprietor of the first “negro-owned” commercial laundry in the state of Mississippi and her uncle was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from the University of Alabama. Early on Lori learned the value of pride and perseverance and through the nurturing of both her mother and aunt who were both teachers, she learned the importance of education.  Dr. Watson has been the keynote speaker and moderator for the Diversity Summits sponsored by the AUHSD for the last three years.
