COMMUNITY CONVERSATION – What’s Going On?:  Social Consciousness and Race in America

Wednesday, November 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mint UPTOWN

Admission is FREE

Singer-Composer Marvin Gaye sang “What’s Going On?” bringing to listeners a new movement of socially-conscious lyrics and identified numerous controversial historical events that would change the face of America.  Today, in 2016, the quandary remains, yet solution-based concepts are shared to help answer the question via candid dialogue with a moderated panel of diverse community leaders representing diversity and inclusion, law enforcement, psychology, art expression, government and religion.
