A virtual and in-person series | Sundays, February 6 – March 13 | 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
The last two years saw an upheaval in race relationships. As Black Lives Matter protests grew across the country and anti-Asian violence surged, latent fears about “the other,” seeded in a history of racial injustice and mistrust, resurfaced.


Increasingly in states across the country, including New Hampshire, we face growing controversy over the teaching of the uncomfortable truths of our local, state, and national histories that continue to drive a wedge between different racial and ethnic groups. Aspects of our past that deal with racism have often been downplayed, ignored, or erased.


For the 2022 Elinor Williams Hooker Tea Talks Series, together we will create a safe space for meaningful interchanges, grounded in history and lived experience between different segments of the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) community. We will also investigate the current issues that continue to create tension in the community.


The Winter Tea Talks are a series of participatory panel presentations and discussions related to New Hampshire’s Black history and African American culture.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
All talks are from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.


In-person talks are held in the Levenson Room at Portsmouth Public Library or in Stokel Commons at Portsmouth Middle School. Please note the event location below.


Registration is required for both in-person and online participation. Seating is limited to 50 people at the Portsmouth Public Library.


In case of inclement weather, talks will be virtual-only.
