Time & Location
About the Event
The Mattapoisett Museum is partnering with the Mattapoisett Free Public Library, Elizabeth Taber Library, Joseph H. Plumb Memorial Library, the YWCA Southeastern Massachusetts, and Tritown Against Racism for a Community Read focused on social justice.
On November 17, The Tritown and Beyond Community Read Committee will host a live, virtual Q & A with local leaders to discuss antiracism and promoting justice. The goal of this event is to learn action steps we can take to promote justice in our community. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
The virtual event will be held via Zoom on November 17 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.
Speakers include: Marlene Pollock, retired professor of History at Bristol Community College and Co-founder of The Coalition for Social Justice, Dr. Jannell Pearson-Campbell, Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the ORR School District, and Gail Fortes, Executive Director of the YWCA of Southeastern Massachusetts.
Rochester’s singer-songwriter Rebecca Correia will open and close the event with original songs she wrote this year in response to the racial injustice in the U.S.
The Community Read Event featured How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi and Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Kendi and Jason Reynolds.
