The Monadnock Food Co-op in Keene will host the second of three virtual round table discussions on racial equity on Friday, April 8, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The roundtable will be presented by Gail Somers, owner of Yahso Jamaican Grille, and a community organizer for diversity, inclusion and racial equity.

Somers’ presentation is intended to help individuals recognize various manifestations of racism, especially structural and institutional racism. During the session, Somers and participants will examine misinformed attitudes, assumptions and beliefs about people of color and their cultures.

An open discussion session on race and racism will also be had amongst participants. Somers will share local and regional organizations that are actively engaged in racial equity work, along with resources of suggested reading and other tools.
