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.

Rev. Dr Isidore Thomas moderates a conversation with Steffen Gillom, President of Windham County NAACP and Mia Schultz, President of the Rutland NAACP. They will share their thoughts regarding major issues and concerns of Black Americans, including Black Vermonters.
