Newberry College to Host Fine Arts Lecture Event On Racial UnityNEWBERRY, SC - April 13, 2011 – Newberry College will be continuing to host its Fine Arts Lecture series with a presentation from authors Tod Ewing and Phyllis and Gene Unterschuetz (pictured right), titled "Three Authors, Two Books, One Topic: The Journey to Racial Unity in Black and White." The three authors will guide the discussion by looking at authentic approaches to bridging the racial divide and creating a new spirit and energy in the movement towards racial unity.
Ewing is the author of the book Seeing Heaven in the face of Black Men, which brings to life the emotional realities of his experiences with race and his belief that a more spiritually based mindset can lead to racial healing. Phyllis and Gene Unterschuetz are the authors of Longing: Stories of Racial Healing, an account of their journey into the lives of African-Americans and their struggle to face their own racial conditioning.
Their goal is to share their point of view, hear the student perspectives and together, determine the next steps toward racial unity.
"Newberry strives to foster cultural awareness through our Fine Arts Lecture series events," Newberry College President Dr. V. Scott Koerwer said. "By offering this level of engagement and interaction, we are providing our students with the perspectives they need to be successful and engaged citizens of the world."
The event is sponsored by the Multicultural Committee of Newberry College, and will take place Tuesday, April 19 at 6:00 p.m. at the Summerland Room in Smeltzer Hall.
