Talking Racial Diversity

Posted Monday, January 29, 2007

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Affirmative action, achievement gap, economic inclusion, health care disparities: such terms have one thing in common - race. Last week a forum in Cleveland Heights started what they hope will be an open and candid dialogue on race. It attracted an audience of close to 400. They left with homework: to keep the conversation going. Monday morning, that's what we'll do - talking racial diversity and bridging racial divisions on The Sound of Ideas.
