FRANK Talk at the Library: Racial Literacy and Social Media – Thursday, Jan. 25

Enjoy a “FRANK Talk” about race, racism, and social media at the Florence Community Library.

 

On Thursday, January 25, at 6:00 pm, the library will host Dr. Kathy Nakagawa of ASU’s School of Social Transformation.  She will present her AZ Humanities FRANK Talk, Is This Racist? Racial Literacy and Social Media.  Dr. Nakagawa will discuss how young people are exposed to social media involving racial attitudes, and how we might develop “racial literacy” in order to have productive conversations about race and racism.

 

The FRANK Talk format emphasizes discussion on issues facing our communities, which means audience discussion and participation is strongly encouraged. All points of view are welcome, with respect for others and a willingness to listen the only requirements!

 

This free program at the Florence Library and Community Center is made possible by AZ Humanities, in partnership with the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Arizona Secretary of State.

 

For more information, or to sign up, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
