A White Historian Explores Race Riots

February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
  • As part of its celebration of Black History month, Takoma Park Presbyterian Church is honored to host Dr. Susan Strasser’s fifth illustrated talk on American racial history on Wednesday, February 23, at 7 p.m. as the church at the corner of Tulip and Marple Avenues. Dr. Strasser brings a unique and provocative perspective to her work. “History is not a collection of facts, but a way of thinking about how things change,” she explains. “My goal is to delve deeper into these crucial chapters of American history than most white people usually do. I believe that history offers a way to become honest with ourselves. In doing this work, I have met many people interested in going beyond simplistic accounts of the past that confirm what they already know and think.”

    This is a community event, and all are welcome. Check the church website at www.takomaparkpc.org for additional information.
