Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the “Ask a Black Man” panel discussions in February and May of 2017, we are very excited to announce that Do Good Roseville has partnered with the Ramsey County Library to create a bi-monthly “Ask.” Series! The “Ask” series seeks to give a voice to the underrepresented in our community by using personal stories from a diversity of life experiences. We hope to create dialogue, promote understanding and forge a stronger community.
Here is a link to a Star Tribune article about the series: Star Tribune article December 3 2017
Each panel discussion will be moderated by Nyia Harris. Nyia not only came up with the idea for this series, she is also responsible for building the strong, trusted community relationships needed to make this series a reality.
We sincerely thank the panelists for their willingness to make themselves available for these programs. It takes a special kind of courage to be open and vulnerable to answer questions about their lives. We owe each of them our utmost respect.
We are also pleased that CTV North Suburbs will film the series so it will be available for viewing for those who cannot attend.
In order to ensure that the panels have time to answer as many questions as possible and to facilitate filming, the format of the programs is that attendees are able to submit questions on notecards and Nyia will select the questions for the panel to answer.
