About the event
Virtual Viewing Followed by a Conversation with Katrina Miller - Director, Producer, Videographer, and Narrator Friday, October 6th at 6 pm
From the documentary's website, https://www.thisisnotwhowearefilm.com, "This is [Not] Who We Are braids the lived experiences of Black characters ranging in age from 12 to 78. Some stories are searing, while others are hopeful. The film seeks to open a space for dialogue among Boulderites and about cities like Boulder, overwhelmingly white, wealthy, and conflicted about issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity. Is a more economically and racially diverse future possible, both in Boulder and in cities like it across America?"
This documentary and conversation is not only for those of us who live in Boulder, CO. Cities, towns, and communities all across our Mountain Sky Conference and beyond, all have histories and realities that require us to learn about, reflect on, and respond to. This is part of our calling and work as United Methodists, transformation.
You are invited as an individual, small group, or church, to view this documentary and join for a time of questions and answers with Katrina Miller. The documentary highlights interviews and wisdom from clergy and people of faith; giving us insight into our calling as people of faith. There is no cost to attend this event, but your donations are welcomed HERE, which will support this screening and our Mountain Sky Conference's Racial Justice Movement and Ministries.
