Reading Area Community College opened it’s doors and hearts to me and You Belong To Me on October 25th, 2016.

A very large and diverse crowd watched and were exposed to the story of Ruby Mccollum and then participated for about an hour in a serious discussion about race and current events.

Our panel consisted of RACC History Professor Emeritis, Jack Lawlor, Reverend Frank McCracken, teacher and community activist, Linda McCormick, and myself, and was moderated by Cathleen Stephen, Director of the beautiful Miller Center for the Arts at RACC.

The audience asked questions of all four of us about not only the film and it’s social significance, but our future as a country. There were many young students as well as middle-aged and elderly people in attendance.

The take away was that more conversation needs to be had between races about race and that we must all vote!

I left RACC feeling great hope for Reading!
