"In order to talk about the word "race," you must also discuss the word "racism."" – Shakyra Diaz

The deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice have ignited conversations on race throughout the U.S. The City Club Youth Forum Council hosts a conversation for high school students on racism and its impact on our communities.

The panel will feature:

  • Shakyra Diaz, ACLU of Ohio Policy Manager
  • Andres Gonzalez, Chief of Police, Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority
  • Jonathan Gordon, Case Western Reserve University Professor of Lawyering Skills
  • Basheer Jones, writer and poet

This program is free for high school students. To reserve student tickets, call 216-621-0082 or email

Tickets are $15 for City Club members and $25 for nonmembers.
