The A.C.T.O.R. Too! (A Continuing Talk on Race) open discussion series (at the Shirlington location) is hosted by Busboys and Poets as a community service. It provides the opportunity for people to come together and speak openly and honestly about issues of race, class and culture. The intent is that each person walks away from the discussion feeling something: challenged, educated, uncomfortable, enlightened, refreshed, reassured and hopefully inspired and moved to action! Each month there is a new topic for discussion.
This Month's Topic: Is Overt Racism an Impeachable Offense?
Earlier this year, two Congressional Representatives initiated Formal efforts to start the process of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Since that time, of the 235 Democrats in the House, there are at least 136 -- according to a CNN count - that have made clear they want an inquiry of impeachment to proceed. Talk of impeachment makes it into daily mainstream newscasts. Like in the articles impeachment against President Andrew Johnson, there may well be specific articles of impeachment against Donald Trump that directly address his racist language and policies. We will be joined by two legal scholars to explore the topic of impeachment and the connection to racism.
A.C.T.O.R. Too! is held on the last Sunday of every month at Busboys and Poets in Arlington, VA from 5:00 PM-7:00 pm.
