Conversation on Race

Conversation on Race

A Conversation on Race
Recent events have aroused the topic of race and racial injustice. But this time it seems different: the protests are larger, white participation is greater, and the national conversation is more urgent. We have started our own conversation at PBCC. 

Each episode has followed the same three-part format: a talk by Bernard Bell, sharing of stories and/or presentation by PBCC family and friends, and a Q&A session. All episodes are available on our PBCC YouTube channel.
