Key Issues Forum: Are We There Yet?

Are we a colorblind society yet? A Key Issues Forum next Tuesday, June 24, looks at how far we've come and what we need to become "post-racial."

Panelists are Lois Brown, chairwoman of the African American Studies Program at Wesleyan University; William A. Howe, who manages civil rights programs for the State Department of Education; and Orlando Rodriguez, legislative analyst at Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission.

The forum will be held 6:30-7:30 p.m. at The224 auditorium at The Conference of Churches, 224 Farmington Ave., Hartford. It's free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended at 860-522-9258, ext. 317.

Please email questions for the panelists, with your name, address and daytime phone number, to opinion@courant.com.

The Hartford Courant has sponsored Key Issue Forums on topics of importance to the community for more than 25 years. This forum is co-sponsored by The Hartford Courant, FOX CT, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and The Conference of Churches.
