Join the City of Norman, the City of Norman Human Rights Commission, the Xenia Institute, Norman Public Schools, OU Office of University Community, and Pioneer Library System for the Beloved Community Speaker Series. This series will consist of four panel events that will highlight important aspects of our community.
Moderated by former Editor of the Norman Transcript Andy Reiger, Norman residents from the African-American, Native American, LGBTQ, and Middle Eastern heritage communities will provide insight into their own experiences in Norman as well as answer questions from the audience. The panelists will differ for each event, but the spirit will remain the same.
This Series was created with the goal of continuing important, albeit sensitive, conversations in our community that will broaden our understanding of cultures different than our own, provide a safe place to ask questions of other cultures, and will continue our efforts to become a truly inclusive community.
These events are free, and all are welcome to attend. Please note that the location of each event is different:
Thursday, September 20: Meacham Auditorium, OU Union
Thursday, February 21: Norman Public Library West
Thursday, April 18: Norman Public Library Central
Registration is not required.
