Salons at Stowe: White Women with Regina Jackson & Saira Rao

Sold Out!

Thursday April 13

7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM

Thank you for registering for the Salons at Stowe 2023 4-part program. Please find the content details for each of the four salons below, as well as the zoom link. The same zoom link will be used for each program.

Salons at Stowe are 21st-century parlor conversations designed to inspire you to action on current social justice issues. This spring (into summer) Salon series features 4 consecutive community-based discussions to explore the ways that white women deny, defend, and deflect white supremacy in their daily life. This program is designed for people who identify as white women, but we will be open to anyone attending (if productive). This is a program that explores how white women show up, and how white women need to work for racial justice.

When you registered you signed up for all 4 sessions. If you purchased the book for pick up in the HBSC Musuem Store the shop is open Thurs-Monday from 10-5pm. If you purchased the book and it is being mailed you will receive it soon.

Mark your calendars now! Each session is held from 7:00-8:30pm. Participants would ideally attend all 4 sessions, but it is certainly not a requirement.

Since 2008, the Stowe Center's Salons have become a forum for lively discussion on contemporary topics that connect to issues that concerned Harriet Beecher Stowe.  Harriet Beecher Stowe, a 19th century white northern abolitionist who worked for the rights and dignity of others, was still flawed in her approach to race and a product of her time. Let's assume we are the same today and work together to be inspired to positive change in our own lives.

Join us in thanking our members and donors for the support of this important work.
