Shelf Life: Meet award-winning author, plus Missoula Symphony at Missoula Public Library

Race and Change Across Cultures and Generations: A Journey in Stories and Music

Join the Missoula Public Library and Humanities Montana for a Montana Conversation with Kitty Oliver. This multimedia program blends memoir and music with cross-cultural stories and research into an innovative dialogue on the complexities of race and ethnic relations in the U.S. today with international perspectives. Drawing on her landmark Race and Change Oral Histories archive of native-born and immigrant voices that she is expanding in her travels, Oliver explores how far we’ve come and how progress can be made in a hopeful way that inspires our youth. This program is held on Sept. 18 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Cooper Room A/B on Level Four of the library. Funding for Montana Conversations is provided by Humanities Montana through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Montana’s Cultural Trust, and private donations.
