Art Expression that invokes discussion
Program Overview: The Heart & Art Series is a quarterly community engagement platform that leverages the arts to help community members across diverse races, cultures, generations, and backgrounds see one another through their “Heart Vision”. These are 3-Hour sessions that involve a thought-provoking and at times controversial artistic piece, followed by a facilitated dialogue designed to reveal, share, and explore diverse perspectives on the piece that was shared.
Film: This 93-minute feature documentary is narrated by
Samuel L. Jackson and is entirely inspired by James Baldwin's Remember This House, written by Baldwin in the mid-1970s. The memoir recounts the  lives of his close friends and civil rights leaders Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers.
It seems like not a day goes by without the alarming prevalence of sexual harassment behavior in our workplaces, schools and other places in our surrounding environment. Victims of sexual harassment are not simply speaking up; they are now standing up, speaking out and making sure their voices are heard. Since the mid-1970s, sexual harassment is considered a form of discrimination based on sex in the United States. Recently, more and more cases have been brought to the public’s attention because people are saying “enough is enough.”
Sister Connection is happy to host an evening of candid discussion and conversation to help our congregation, family and friends learn to identify sexual harassment and ways to prevent or combat this issue. Join our PGC Sister Connection at Pleasant Grove Church on Monday, June 4, 2018 and hear PGC’s Claretta Foye as she speaks to us on sexual harassment issues in our environment.
Contact: Diane Harris, Shelley Knight or Venisha Hoskins for more details or to RSVP.
