Refreshments will be served.

Tunnel of Oppression

The Tunnel of Oppression is one of our most respected and mind-opening events of the month.  It is an interactive tour designed to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, privilege and power.  Participants are guided through a series of scenes that aim to educate and challenge them to think more deeply about issues of oppression.  At the end of the tunnel, is our Room of Hope, which allows for participants to discuss their experiences and put to use their new-found knowledge in their everyday lives.

CANCELED: CME Book Club: Black Woman Redefined: Dispelling Myths and Discovering Fulfillment in the Age of Michelle Obama by Sophia Nelson

Black Woman Redefined: Dispelling Myths and Discovering Fulfillment in the Age of Michelle Obama by Sophia Nelson focuses on “redefining” the portrayals of black women in the media. In the book, Nelson provides the necessary tools and encouragement for women to reshape their futures. Book Club sessions are open to the public. If one has not read the book, one is still encouraged to attend and participate in discussion.

Christine Seyboe Tour Lecture

Join us over the lunch hour to hear the triumphant story of Christine Seyboe Tour. Listen to her journey as a refugee during the Liberian Civil War, when she started her own beauty salon in Ghana and began to rescue women off the city streets to teach them cosmetology skills. After returning to Liberia a few years after the war, she transferred her business and institute back home—continuing to reach out to women in need. As a result, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women initiative recognized her in 2010 for giving back to her community and country.
