Watch and Discuss “Roosevelt High School: Beyond Black & White”

Tuesday, May 10, 7–8:30 p.m. in Knatvold

Are you a . . .

  • parent or grandparent of a current or soon-to-be school age child? Are you choosing a school for them? Wondering how to talk your child about the racial composition or racial dynamics at their school?
  • potential house buyer or renter curious about the reasons for the historical north end/south end difference in the racial composition of Seattle neighborhoods?
  • history buff curious about the history of the effort to integrate the Seattle public schools? What drove it? What happened?
  • Seattle public or private school alum or parent who experienced the integration effort or its consequences?

The Racial Justice Team and UUC Family Ministries invite you to a Tuesday, May 10, 7-8:30 pm screening and facilitated discussion of Roosevelt High School: Beyond Black & White, a 30-minute video produced by Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity (RARE). The event will be held in person at UUC. Light snacks provided, COVID precautions permitting.

For planning purposes, an email RSVP is appreciated, but feel free to come without one. If you need childcare, please indicate the number and ages of your children.
