Please note: this free event will be held on Zoom and distributed through Mount Mansfield Community Television. We’ve learned that the church has reached capacity for the Zoom event. However, you can watch the  forum live on the Mount Mansfield Community TV YouTube channel starting at 7pm:

How far have we come as Americans in confronting racism? This is a topic that remains so intimidating and painful that we prefer not to talk about it in public for fear of what we might say or reveal, or how others might see or treat us. In this forum series, we wish to create a safe space where we can speak openly and honestly as people of good intent who seek the best for each other and our nation as we honestly face the racial divisions of our past and present with the hope of reconciliation. This year’s forum series will focus on combating racism in Vermont.

Moderated by Reverend Arnold Isidore Thomas, this month’s forum Growing Up Black in Vermont features a panel of African American students from Mount Mansfield Union High School, Woodstock Union High School, and Randolph Union High School, who will share their experiences.
