“Neighbors are people who live close to each other. Neighbors look at each other; they talk to each other; they listen to each other. That’s how they get to know each other.” – Mister Rogers
Inspired by the work of Fred Rogers, KIXE PBS’ “It’s Our Neighborhood” virtual film and conversation series is a monthly, online community event designed to reduce bias and create an inclusive neighborhood. Using content from PBS and local filmmakers, screenings and discussions will take place the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 PM, beginning in September. This film and discussion series is made possible by funding from the Shasta College Foundation.
September 17th at 6:00 PM “The First Rainbow Coalition” In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form alliances across lines of race and ethnicity with other community-based movements in the city, including the Latino group the Young Lords Organization and the southern whites of the Young Patriots. https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/q371c.
A Panel discussion about building local coalition will follow the film.
“We’ve had great success with virtual gatherings”, says Julie Driver, Corporate and Community Engagement for KIXE PBS. “Because our service area is so large, we’d never be able to reach people from across our region with an in-person event. With this platform, anyone with an internet connection can be part of the conversation.”
