Inspired by the legacy of Dr. King, America’s Sunday Supper invites people from diverse backgrounds to come together to share a meal, discuss issues that affect their community and highlight the power each one of us has to make a difference. Join us at Trinity United Methodist Church (4001 Speedway) on January 19, 2014 from 6-7:3o pm, for A Frank Dialogue on Race – an open conversation and guided discussion on racial dynamics and how to combat racism in our community here in Central Texas.
