The dialogue will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Jan. 24 in the gymnasium of the Robert Crown Center, 1701 Main St.
The dialogue, which focuses on the topic of institutional racism, was preceded by earlier dialogues on Aug. 9 and Oct. 25. Residents attending this final dialogue will be encouraged to remain engaged in alternative forums, events and activities related to race relations.
