One event on July 18, 2018 at 6:30 pm
School textbooks have played a key role in reinforcing and maintaining white supremacy and racism in the United States. James W. Loewen’s bestselling book Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook got Wrong, explores how historical myths continue to be perpetuated about everything from Columbus’s historic voyages to an honest evaluation of U.S. foreign policy. Please join us for one or both of two dialogues to discuss the issues presented in Loewen’s book: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 — Noon to 2:00 PM and/or Wednesday, July 18, 2018 — 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
Both events will be held at the Center for the Healing of Racism, 3412 Crawford St., Houston, 77004. The events are free and open to the public (first 45 to RSVP). Registration required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org calling (713) 520-8226. Free parking is available at Houston Community College lot #9. Website: http://www.centerhealingracism.org/
