Courageous Community Conversations...

is a reading and discussion program designed to give attendees the opportunity to engage in authentic and enlightening dialogue on challenging topics. This event introduces participants to the rich tapestry of refugees in the Tulsa area. The Ungrateful Refugee by Dina Nayeri will be our primary text for discussion, detailing personal accounts and insights into the immigrant experience. For those who are more drawn to fiction, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid provides a a thought-provoking perspective on similar issues through the lens of magical realism. Participants are encouraged to join in an eye-opening exchange of ideas as we seek to gain insight into the unique challenges refugees in our community encounter and the strengths they bring.

 

Conversaciones que Empoderan a la Comunidad es un programa de lectura y discusión diseñado para brindar a los miembros de la comunidad la oportunidad de participar en diálogos auténticos y alumbradores sobre temas desafiantes. Para este evento en particular consideramos el rico tapiz que representan refugiados en el área de Tulsa.  The Ungrateful Refugee de Dina Nayeri será el texto principal, lo cual provee anécdotas personales y la experiencia de la autora. Para aquellos que se sienten más atraídos por la ficción y prefieren leer en español, Bienvenidos a Occidente de Mohsin Hamid ofrece una perspectiva que invita reflexión sobre el tema a través del lente de realismo mágico. Se animarán a todos a un intercambio de ideas para ampliar nuestro criterio y comprender los retos únicos que enfrentan nuestros vecinos refugiados y los beneficios que su fortaleza nos aporta.
