February's "Thinking About Race Thursday Event"
For February's event, the TRC has posed the following questions for discussion during the meeting.
- How do you feel about Black History Month?
- Reflect on the following quote from the Philadelphia Tribune: “The history of Black Americans is a testament to the human spirit. Despite enslavement and centuries of brutal discrimination, many Black Americans became creators of a strategy for living and triumphed over their conditions with faith, resilience, and dignity. Knowledge of this history can inform and uplift those who are struggling to overcome life’s challenges. However, Black History Month was never supposed to be the end goal. It is the beginning — a small spark that hopefully will bring light to the minds of all Americans to seek more information for greater knowledge and understanding.” How do you relate to this quote? What are your feelings about Black History Month? How can we relate that to life in the Carlisle Borough?
- How do you feel about the Borough crest retirement?
