      It's Complicated: Are white liberals unintentionally slowing racial progress?

      It's Complicated: Are white liberals unintentionally slowing racial progress?  Since we began our Local Color gatherings two years ago, we've come to understand that the relationship between white liberals and black Americans is much more complicated than many of us thought. We'll go there, but we'll do it like the neighbors we are.  Broaching this subject at our Local Color planning meeting led to (let’s just call it) a spirited discussion about the role that white liberalism does - and doesn’t - play in advancing concerns of black America.  Get your ticket, and a ticket for a friend, you will want to be there. As usual — with your help — we'll have a rollicking discussion with more than one opinion in it, we'll figure it all out in 90 minutes and we'll leave (more or less) still liking each other.  Where else will you get that? Local Color is sponsored by: As if that weren't good enough, appetizers on us, drinks (and additional food) available for your purchase. We are incredibly grateful to be able to present this with on-going support from: The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through the Community Foundation of North Florida and the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Florida Humanities Council.
