Gainesville Hopes Films Can Increase Talks, Reduce Racism
It is a topic that can be uncomfortable to talk about, but the city of Gainesville says it's necessary.
To help people break down stereotypes in a more comfortable setting, the office of equal opportunity has sponsored a five part film series called "Dismantling Racism."
Tomorrow night the last film in the series, "The Great Debaters" will be shown at the downtown library.
From here, the city will take volunteers and conduct smaller study groups, then larger action forums to generate ideas on how city officials can reduce racism in our area.
If you would like to attend the movie, it is free and open to the public.
It begins at 6pm tomorrow night and is showing at the main library.
