As the color lines blur, the question of race is more pervasive than ever.  Issues of profiling and mass incarceration, access and equity in education and employment, housing and healthcare, all beg the question… Does Race Matter?

On Sunday, October 13, CSC will facilitate an open community dialogue as a part of our Race Matters? project.  The event will be an opportunity for informed conversation about the realities of race in this country and how we can impact change.  The conversation will be fueled by the work of three featured artist.
