An Evening with Jeannine Bell
Come to the Table, our annual fund raising event (formerly Harvest Gathering), is taking place on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 5:30 PM, at the historic Woolery Mill. The reception and silent auction begins at 5:30, with dinner and program following at 6:30.
Maurer Law School Faculty, and nationally-recognized scholar Jeannine Bell, will headline the evening, as she challenges us to "come to the table". In an era of increasing polarization and division—politically, racially, and economically—can one be a good neighbor? It’s not as simple as many assume. Professor Bell, who has written about hate crime and housing integration for the last 20 years, grapples with these issues in her talk. She will explore how the current state of housing segregation leads most Americans to live racially separate lives. She will close with a discussion of repairing this fracture, a challenge both harder and easier than one might think. An audience Q & A will follow!
The thought-provoking event takes place this year at the historic Woolery Mill, with catering provided by One World. The evening includes a cocktail reception, silent auction, and dinner. After dinner, guests can practice negotiation skills during the Dessert Dash, competing for delicious desserts, including ones prepared by local bakers and eateries! Don't delay, the event has sold out for the past four years.
