Breaking Bread 2019: Community dialogue on identity and history – what will our stories reveal?

staunton newBuilding Bridges for the Greater Good would like to welcome everyone to the third annual Breaking Bread community dialogue on Saturday, April 13 from 1:00-3:30 pm at the Booker T. Washington Community Center in Staunton.

Each spring, several hundred people come together to break bread and converse across differences.

This year’s dialogue will be another openhearted space to share food and stories about our identities, heritage and history around. Each table group will discover together what meanings these stories reveal and explore ways we can help promote racial healing in our community and in our world. Groups of about six people will join a table, mixing for maximum diversity, and will be guided through a structured conversation of sharing stories.

Participants are asked to bring a bread or finger food to share. We will also have live music and spoken word poetry.
