Will, thanks to you every City Bureau’s Diversity Committee has a DVD of “Local Color”. The Bureaus have been showing it regularly and I have facilitated a number of small group discussions following the showing of the video. We also showed the film as part of our 2008 Black History Month Celebration in the auditorium in the Portland Building.
I am also facilitating a showing of the film at our upcoming16th Annual Public Employees Diversity Conference. This will provide an opportunity for employees and managers from 8 public agencies in the 4 county area to view Local Color as well.
The City has a committee to plan an implement Black History MonthActivities. If you have ideas for us don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m on vacation until Monday.
As always your support of local Black History is much appreciated.
