The Road to We: Memphis’ Past, Present & Future- A Community Round Table

April 20, 2019  12 - 4 pm

Pink Palace Mansion Theater

Sponsored by the First Tennessee Foundation

Hosted by Win Sum Agency and Storyboard Memphis, in collaboration with the Pink Palace Museum's Bicentennial exhibit, Making Memphis.

The event will host a lively discussion with local leaders and experts as they share their experience, thoughts and vision for Memphis' future, while advocating for action around Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Six Principles of Nonviolence. The event will be filmed by documentary filmmaker Lakethen Mason.

We will take a hard look at where we are as a local culture based on Dr. Martin Luther King’s six areas of social change.

Are we there yet? If not, what should we do to make certain we get there? We will also openly and candidly approach the topics of race, equity, and equality and discover ways to address these areas of concern to ensure a unified, forward progression of Memphis as we know it.

Our discussion will be led by panelists of diverse age, race, gender, ethnic, and ideological backgrounds, from organizations such Sistersupply, Facing History and Ourselves, and Frayser Community Development Corporation.

Together, they will provide integral context to our complicated past, unclear present, and uncertain future and provide insight on ways to move forward together and stay connected to Dr. King's philosophy of creating lasting social change for all.

This is event is free and open to the public though seating is limited. Reserve tickets here:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-road-to-we-exploring-memphis-past-present-future-tickets-59589656266
