SHOULD WE RENAME SIBLEY PARK?

  • October 26
  • 2-3:30 pm

In recent years, some public parks and other gathering spaces have been renamed because of bad acts by those whose name is on them. Col. Henry Sibley, for whom Mankato’s Sibley Park is named, is cited for his role in the U.S.-Dakota War in 1862. What criteria should be used if the name is changed, and what are some possible selections? Who should make the decision?

Cost: Free! Call (507) 386-5586 to register.
This presentation will be held on Zoom.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING ‘NON RACIST’

  • October 27
  • 2-3:30 pm

There is no such thing as being “not racist,” says author and historian Ibram X. Kendi. We will listen to his vital conversation, where he defines the transformative concept of antiracism to help us more clearly recognize, take responsibility for and reject prejudices in our public policies, workplaces and personal beliefs. In the discussion to follow, will learn how to actively use this awareness to uproot injustice and inequality in the world – and replace it with love.

Cost: Free! Call (507) 386-5586 to register.
This presentation will be held on Zoom.
