Learning the Land: A Virtual Civil Rights Tour

Learning the Land: A Virtual Civil Rights Tour

Welcome to our four-part racial justice series, Amplifying Voices.

As we seek to move ourselves both individually and collectively from non-racist to anti-racist beliefs and actions, we are witnessing a moment in history with the possibility for true change. Amplifying Voices marries internal t’shuva, personal pattern breaking, growth, and reckoning with a series of programs by artists and thought leaders inside and outside the Jewish community who will help us reflect on race, religion, and identity.  We invite everyone, both Jewish and non-Jewish, into authentic and meaningful conversation designed to move the needle on how we all engage in the world with sensitivity and compassion.

In this program, you will get to participate in a virtual Civil Rights Tour and interactive discussion with an emphasis on the cities of Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma with T. Marie King. This workshop will be moderated by Samantha Dubrinsky.

About T. Marie King: T. Marie King is an activist, facilitator, organizer, and volunteer. Serving on the core coalition for the Jefferson County Memorial Project and the board of the Greater Birmingham Arts Education Collaborative, T. Marie has combined her passion for the arts with her purpose of advocating for social change. Her most recent venture is Local Voices Network, a community-driven platform that shares the stories of those whose voices often go unheard.

Ticket sales will close 24 hours before the event begins. Once you have purchased your ticket, you will receive a one time non-shareable link to the Zoom conversation a few days before the event.

This program is brought to you in partnership with the Tucson JCC and the Capital Jewish Museum.
