Omaha Table Talk to Discuss Post-Racial America at Annual Potluck
Omaha - Omaha Table Talk will be hosting its third annual Ethnic Potluck Dinner and Discussion on Thursday, Feb. 16 with a focus on promise of a post-racial society in America.
Housed in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), Omaha Table Talk is a program that brings diverse racial and ethnic groups together over dinner to discuss issues of race. The theme for this year is “A Post-Racial Society: American Reality or Myth?”
To help guide the discussion, the potluck dinner will feature fine dining from around the world. Guests are required to bring a dish that represents one of the cultures that help make the United States such a diverse country.
The event will be moderated by Franklin Thompson, associate professor of teacher education at UNO, and feature a panel presentation by Cynthia Robinson, chair of UNO’s Black Studies Department and Andrew Sullivan, a community activist from Omaha.
Because this special session will include mature subject matter, it is recommended for those no younger than high school age.
The event will be held at the West Hills Church at 3015 S. 82nd Ave. in Omaha. Registration and check-in begin at 5:30 p.m. with the program running from 6 to 9 p.m.
Due to limited seating, those interested in securing a spot must register before Feb. 13 at www.omahatabletalk.com.
