TCMU hosts Family Forum: Talking About Race at Home


Upstate Parent

The Children’s Museum of the Upstate–Greenville will host Family Forum: Talking About Race at Home 3 – 5 p.m. Saturday, June 20. The forum, open to all families, will include panelists Jeremiah Dew, Director of Dew Productions, LLC, Jessica Sharp, Founder of Sharp Brain Consulting, Dr. Edward Anderson Executive Director of United Way's Ontrack Greenville, and Hillary Spencer, President and CEO of the museum. 

The free family forum will allow multi-generational families to come together to discuss race and racism and how we talk about this as families. The purpose of the forum is not only to provide resources for parents on ways to talk with their children about racism, but to also allow families time to discuss these topics together in a safe space through interaction, play and guided discussions.

The event will begin with an interactive dialogue for adults and children, followed by a panel-led Q&A for adult. Children will be invited to play and create in museum spaces during the Q&A. The event will be held in person at TCMU with limited capacity, due to social distancing. Registration is required. The event will also be available via Zoom for those interested in attending virtually.

TCMU will also host a free screening of the documentary, “13th,” at 6 p.m. on June 25. Tickets for the Family Forum can be reserved through TCMU’s website or via Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/family-forum-talking-about-race-at-home-tickets-108885098260
