Bloomington-Normal “Not In Our Town” (NIOT) activities started in 1995 with the original screening of “Not In Our Town” on PBS, a series of community forums on local issues of discrimination. In the summer of 1996, there was a NIOT march. For the following 18 years there have been marches, diversity celebrations, community forums and outreach through local schools. Given recent national events, it is imperative that we raise our local level of discussions on discrimination and racism.
On Thursday, Jan. 8 at 12:10 p.m., bring your bag lunch and join us in the Museum’s historic Governor Fifer Courtroom on the second floor for a special presentation and group discussion led by longtime NIOT organizers Willie Halbert and Camille Taylor.
The monthly Lunch and Learn series is sponsored by the Collaborative Solutions Institute, Illinois Wesleyan University and the McLean County Museum of History. Sessions are free and open to the public.
