2015 Beloved Community Dialogue on January 31: Integrated Education as a Public Good
This year's Beloved Community Dialogue will have the theme, Integrated Education as a Public Good. To be held on Saturday, January 31, here on campus, the 5th annual dialogue will feature an intergenerational panel discussion on how a fully integrated education is is ultimately for the good of the individual as well as the public, based in the belief that access to and diversity in education is critical to a thriving society. The panel will be moderated by our own FSA parent and trustee Elizabeth DeBray, a Professor in the Department of Lifelong Education Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia. Other panelists include David Jernigan, Deputy Superintendent for Atlanta Public Schools; Elizabeth Wilson, Decatur Mayor Emeritus and lifelong civil rights activist; and Maurlia Upchurch, an FSA alum and current junior at Duke University. This will be a powerful conversation that includes FSA's roots in Atlanta Quakers' efforts to desegregate schools as well as focus on an alarming trend of how our schools are becoming more segregated today. Tickets will be $10 for the discussion or $100 for the event and a fund-raiser reception with the panelists before the event. The reception will run from 5:00 pm to 5:45 pm and the panel discussion will run from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Childcare will be provided for school-aged children of FSA families. Please watch the LQN for more information.
