Black Girl in Suburbia, a documentary that looks at the experiences of young black women growing up in predominately white communities, will be screened during an event at Northshore Performing Arts Center on March 3 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Director Melissa Lowery, who grew up in a Portland, Oregon, suburb, will introduce the film. Facilitated panel discussion and breakout sessions will follow at 3:15 p.m.
This event, hosted by the school district’s Equity & Diversity Committee, provides an opportunity for community members to come together and gain new perspectives. It is designed to start discussions that allow those of all races, genders or ethnic backgrounds to explore perceptions of self, others and the increasingly diverse Northshore community.
The entire community is encouraged to attend.
