Reimagine the Dream of MLK @ Good Samaritan Church on Jan 14, 2017

On Saturday, January 14, 2017, members of Pacifica Institute hosted a discussion at the Good Samaritan United Methodist Church about being “color-brave” instead of being “color-blind”. The discussion was part of a series of many dialogues, observations, and activities all in one event called “Reimagine the Dream” and had gone on throughout the day in memory and honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his movement that has continued to inspire many individuals today.  Before the discussion on this topic had started, the audience of almost 40 members of different religious and racial backgrounds watched a video about being color brave in many areas of our lives including our work environment, with our neighbors and our schools. This had motivated the audience to respond and analyze how can we start with being color brave and where we can start that as well. Pacifica Institute members then went on to discuss the meaning, challenges, and struggles of being color brave and areas in which we are strong in our community and areas where we lack in the community and how we can improve.
