First activity in "Ethnicity and Race" series this Sunday
February 12, 2003
Austin Peay is hosting a series of programs devoted to the topic “Ethnicity and Race in a Changing America." Included in the series are films and documentaries that explore the history of American minorities and the social issues they face.
“This Far by Faith,” a program to be aired over PBS, will examine the role African-American religious communities and leaders played in shaping the meaning and practice of the democratic ideals central to American society.
The program begins at 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 16, in the Harambee room of the Wilbur N. Daniels African American Cultural Center. The forum commences with a 15-minute discussion video.
Discussion panelists include the Rev. Wiley Moore, the Rev. George Brooks, the Rev. Patricia Carter and the Rev. David Allen. Dr. Jacqueline Wade, director of the African American Cultural Center, will moderate.
Future events will feature previews of “Becoming American: The Chinese Experience,” “Raceâ€”The Power of an Illusion” and “Matters of Race.”
The programs are sponsored by Preview Forums under a grant from the Ford Foundation.
