Part of the following series: Please join us this spring as Greenwood comes together to celebrate diversity and multicultural appreciation in our community. One of the best aspects of living in Greenwood is the range of differences in the people who live here. Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, gays, lesbians, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, rich, poor, middle class… we all call Greenwood home.

Across the nation, we find today too much fractious discourse that pits people in various social groups against one another. While Greenwood has been spared much of the polarization and division found in other parts of the country, there is a sense among many of us that we can do better – that we can and must work harder to reach out to and better understand people who are different from ourselves.

“Let’s Talk About Race in America” is a three-month series of events sponsored by Greenwood County Library, The Friends of the Greenwood County Library System, Starz24 Josh Norman, the SC Humanities Council, Lander University, GLEAMNS, and Duke Energy. We are proud to host a number of enlightening and entertaining events for the whole community including book readings and discussions; film screenings and debate; public lectures; social gatherings; and a jazz concert. There will be events for adults, children, and everyone in between.
