The Beyond Civility project allows citizens and civic leaders to meet and explore the barriers and bridges to effective dialogue. At Beyond Civility's Back-to-Back programs, high profile advocates of opposing positions on a legal or social issue agree to speak convincingly on behalf of the other side’s views. It's a challenging exercise, but one that fosters understanding and respect for those who hold different viewpoints.
Beyond Civility's next Back-to-Back program tomorrow evening addresses relations between police and the African-American community.
Joining us to discuss policing and the African-American Experience and the Beyond Civility initiative are Church of the Living God Pastor Ennis Tait; Beyond Civility moderator, Patti Foster; and Cincinnati Police Department Executive Assistant Police Chief, Lt. Colonel Dave Bailey.
Beyond Civility will present the Back-to-Back program, "Black and Blue: Policing and the African-American Experience," Tuesday April 18 at the New Prospect Baptist Church. Reception and registration are from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Back-to-Back is from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m. For more information and registration, click here.
