More than Kumbaya: Checking in

More than Kumbaya: Check-in (virtual)
Tuesday, March 2, 7 pm RSVP

More than Kumbaya is our video series which features conversations with local black leaders who reflect on aspects of race in Baton Rouge.  Whether you have watched one or all of the videos, join the conversation as we “check-in” with each other. Our dialogue will be framed by the questions posed in the More than Kumbaya videos:

LISTEN: What did you hear? How did you feel as you listened?

REFLECT: What surprised you? What if?

ACT: What are possible actions? What are you being called to do?
