(V) Perceptions of Color #10: PRIDE

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Program livestreamed at facebook.com/garlandcountylibrary and youtube.com/garlandcolibrary

Join Marsalis Weatherspoon and his guests for Perceptions of Color, a monthly series that intends to both celebrate and educate about all facets of the African American experience. Weatherspoon, a musician, speaker, and public servant, currently serves as President of the local NAACP branch, Hot Springs Branch #6013.

June 2022 is Pride Month and marks the tenth installation in the Perceptions of Color Series! The Black and LGBTQ communities have both historically experienced oppression, discrimination and violence. Discussing what it means to be Black and LGBTQ, we will be joined by our guest Ms. Chrystal Seawood.

Her classrooms are engaged and center the experiences of Black lives and cultures. She is a native of Forrest City, Arkansas, and has taught at the high school level in both Forrest City and in alternative settings in Washington, D.C. With this perspective and experience, Chrystal is a founding member of Amateka College Prep in Washington, D.C. She is a collaborating author for “Teaching Language Variation in the Classroom” and will be beginning an MFA program in fall at Maryland Institute College of Art.
