African American Community Conditions (Situations of Substance)

Racine is currently listed by 24/7 Wall Street as the 3rd Worst City in America for Black Americans.  Racine is symptomatic of this problem broadly.  It is critical not only to be aware but to engage in solution-focused discussions about what we, wherever we live, can do to ensure that such conditions improve for African Americans.  Kimberly will share her lived experiences and data on local conditions affecting African Americans and engage participants in a Conversation Café—guided table discussions, brainstorming and resource sharing.
