Thanks to U.S. 1 newspaper for its excellent cover story on Ruha Benjamin’s Racial Literacy series, written by Michele Alperin.
Next in the series is a screening of California Reel’s “Race: The Power of an Illusion” at the Garden Theater. The three-part series includes “The Difference Between Us,” Tuesday, October 25, 6:30 p.m.; “The Story We Tell,” Monday, November 7, 6:30 p.m.; and “The House We Live In,” Tuesday, November 15, 6:30 p.m.
On Tuesday, November 1, at 6:30 p.m. in Princeton Public Library’s Community Room, Benjamin will look at reality through the lens of race. “When I am talking about reading reality in this series,” she says, “it is about seeing beneath the surface, about narratives we are fed about different people, communities, and neighborhoods. It’s this unveiling; let’s look beyond the stories we are fed.”
