“Community Conversations” is a program of the Conversations Bureau of the New York Council for the Humanities created to bring together members of a community to engage in thoughtful dialogue on American Identity, using a short text and scholar-facilitator as a guide. Civic life is a shared endeavor that requires the informed participation of all citizens. These Conversations provide arenas in which we can come together for thoughtful discussion and dialogue about our shared values as Americans and New Yorkers—past, present, and future.
This Conversation, funded by the New York Council for the Humanities, is free and all materials will be provided.
