"Shades of Black": Connected by Color, Culture, & Community

Black folk in predominantly white environments have often found it “exhausting” to continually describe for others the negative impact of racism on them. They also have felt it a burden to serve in the position of “teacher” representing the wider Black community, instead of being viewed as individuals with their own unique stories and needs.

For this panel, Black Americans from diverse backgrounds will share their stories on what it means to live in and love their own skin.

For registration (both in-person and virtual) please visit the 2023 Elinor Williams Hooker Tea Talks Series page.

This program is part of a series, Bringing It Back: Conversations We Still Need, presented by the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire and funded in part by a NHH Community Project Grant.
