Conversations on Race Relations: Where do we go from here?

October 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

After a year-long conversation between community members, churches and citizens who want to see a meaningful, lasting change happen within our community, the seventh of several planned meetings has been scheduled for October 8th at 6:00pm.

You are invited to join us at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, located at 425 Cleveland Ave SW in Canton, Ohio at 6:00pm.

Dinner will be 6-6:30 pm
Conversation will be 6:30-8 pm
Dessert will follow Conversation

The focus of this conversation will be discussing how the Route 30 Construction/ Cherry Ave SE Community destruction forever changed Canton.
In addition to hearing about how an act in the 1970’s decimated an entire community.

From there we will continue to discuss WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Find below a brief rundown of the previous conversation topics, along with some reading and book links if you were unable to attend the previous sessions but would like to learn some more.
