The event was live-streamed on Facebook, and you can access the full recording here (action starts at 1:15 mark).

The Facebook event page provided the following description:

From hot button controversies like the NFL kneeling protests to disturbing incidents like the murder of Botham Jean in his own home, the role of race and racism in America inspires fiery online debates and powerful social movements. But what if we took these high-profile incidents and, rather than looking at them as an excuse to argue, used them as an opportunity to listen? 

On Tuesday, October 16 at 6:30pm, Advent Hope's Peace Ministry invites you to come and hear from a panel featuring members of our Advent Hope community as they discuss how racism personally affects their lives and consider ways that we might all work together to fight racism in our society.
