"Our objective is to provide an instructive opportunity for people of different ages, generations, races, and classes to share their views, opinions, and experiences-and to hear the views and opinions of others," said James Harris, first vice president and chairman of the education committee of the Montclair branch of the NAACP.

Rev. Ann Ralosky, Senior Minister of FCC said,  "We are excited to partner with the NAACP, and serve as host for this first conversation."

She continued, "Montclair is such a wonderfully diverse community, and there is so much we can learn from one another. Hopefully all that's needed is a safe and structured environment for people to speak up and be heard. We see this as a chance to engage in positive community building."
