Zellner, a retired Concord-Carlisle High School faculty member, will focus on recent events and the response to them, in the context of American history. He will define racism and talk about transforming racist behavior.
Following his presentation, participants will break into small groups on Zoom for informal dialogue.
One of the goals of Bedford Embraces Diversity is to foster and sustain conversations about racism in the community, how it can be identified, addressed, and eradicated. Additional programs are planned for August and into the fall.
