How much does race matter? Does it define who you are? How people react to you? Join Alaska Public Media for Community in Unity: Race & Identity, a public dialogue about race, how it helps us define ourselves, and how it influences our interactions with others.

Community in Unity is Alaska Public Media's community dialogue series. Though a group of individuals will help guide the conversation, this event truly relies on input from all perspectives. How does race influence you and your community?

Doors open at 6:30 and recording starts at 7 pm.  The program will be recorded for broadcast on KSKA 91.1 FM.
