Racial Justice Dialogues: Race and Social Change with author Max Klau

  • Common Street Spiritual Center 13 Common St. Natick, MA (map)

This month features special guest Max Klau, author of Race & Social Change: A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action.

Max's book is based on his experience of a provocative educational exercise (in the tradition of the Milgram obedience experiments and the Stanford prison experiment) that models the unfolding of multiple simulated civil rights movements. The insights from this exploration of matters of race and social change are surprising and provocative, and illuminate the work each of us can do to confront racial injustice in our own communities. Max will present a brief overview of key insights from the book to spark our Racial Justice Dialogue.Dr. Klau will join us for this discussion. More info. will be posted as the meeting is planned.

See our Meetup page for details about this month's unique topic:
