Description: The Champaign Community Coalition invites the public to attend a free screening of the documentary Racial Taboo. The film is 53 minutes long and examines America’s racial history and how it continues to affect today’s society. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in small group discussions after viewing the film. Brian Grimm, the film’s producer, will be in attendance.
The Champaign Community Coalition is a network of stakeholders in the community who work together to improve the lives of youth and families in the Champaign-Urbana area. Its facilitator Tracy Parsons says the Coalition wants to help the public tackle difficult questions about racial issues. This screening is intended to promote “an open, honest community dialogue.”
