Each week will be a different speaker touching on a unique New York Black experience followed by a Q&A.
About our Talking About Race Matters Lecture Series:
One of the most important topics throughout history and in recent months, is the topic of race. Given current events covered in the news, we at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum feel that it is important to have and to facilitate conversations on race, even though they can be challenging. Because of this, we have put together a series of talks with experts, each looking at the topic of race from a different perspective. Our hope is that we can all come together, learn from one another, and to continue the conversation. We hope that you will join us!
