How do contemporary ideas on race, place, and diversity impact your views?
Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey is committed to a five-year symposium project that focuses attention on fostering awareness of issues of diversity at the local, regional, national, and international level. The Symposium provides a platform for a candid discussion on race, place, and diversity, and how each influences the current condition and future of Kansas City.
Moderated by Tyrone Aiken and Michelle T. Johnson, featured panelists will engage the audience to explore relevant social issues with deep, systemic roots. Panelists will also share important insights from their journey of life, struggle, and success to take questions and support an open dialog with audience members to increase understanding.
