We invite you to the first 2021 Brave Space Community Dialogue on the eve of MLK Day, Sunday, January 17, from 7-8pm.
We will reflect on the day that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. came to speak in Montclair in 1966. Individuals who were there on that historic day will share their remembrances.
We will also dialogue on the present and its impact on the future of our community.
The discussion will be led by YMCA of Montclair’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee Chair Dr. Laura Quiros, Ph.D., LMSW.
We thank YMCA of Montclair Board Member Dr. Shirley A. R. Lewis for her assistance with this program.
The event is free, and all are welcome—register by clicking HERE.
