Arts Garage, Spady Museum & Delray CRA to Co-host Authors Speak Series on 'Race in America'
The timely topic of this "free to see" series is The Impact of Race on American Society, offering "interesting and enlightening conversations with three writers who have cultivated a perspective on black cultural awareness through their research and personal experiences."
"Making a difference in the lives of others can be as simple as being aware of your differences and being able to talk from a compassionate perspective,"
Jadusingh agrees: "There are many conditions that lead to the development and spread of slum and blight, including lack of understanding of the needs of others. Through this series we hope to share information about the Delray Beach CRAs projects and programs, while shedding light on what others in our community may be experiencing."
