Thursday, October 4th: What Are You?: A Discussion About Mixed Heritage + Free Beer

What Are You?: A Discussion About Mixed Heritage
Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont St., Brooklyn)
7-9pm
Free, RSVP required

Let’s talk about race and ethnicity, and where we’re from (or where we’re from from); how we express our own multicultural identities, and how others perceive us.

Panelists will start the conversation and we hope you’ll join in. We’ll discuss big questions like: How does our cultural background shape us? Can we see race? Is identity fixed or fluid? #CBBGwhatru
