While we are not able to record video of all of our Continuing Conversations sessions (and some of the more interactive programs would probably not lend themselves to later-date viewing), we DO try to video some of our programs in order to increase the likelihood of community members being able to learn from our work even in those instances in which their schedule made in-person attendance impossible.
In May, 2020, Not In Our Town’s Continuing Conversation moved to an all-digital format; Reverend Lukata Mjumbe’s talk on “Sheltering in the Place of Privilege,” reflections on Princeton’s historical response to the Spanish Flu and our current challenges with the COVID19 pandemic, is available here.
In February, 2017, Not In Our Town’s monthly Continuing Conversation session featured a presentation by Howard Stevenson, author of “Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools: Differences That Make a Difference.” Thanks to our generous partner, the Princeton Public Library, we are able to share the video from that evening with you:
In March, 2017, NIOT’s Continuing Conversation session was focused on the experiences and perspectives of Muslim American members of our community. This session’s recording was broken into seven separate sections:
Part 1 (Shelley Krause introduction)
Part 2 (Imam Sohaib Sultan, Princeton University Muslim Life Program)
Part 3 (Imam Mustafa Furqan from Trenton’s Taqwa Community Learning Center)
Part 4 (Mrs. Afsheen Shamsi, community member)
Part 5 (Dr. Shazia Nishtar, community member)
Part 6 (Ali Javadi-Abhari, Princeton University graduate student)
Part 7 (audience Q&A and Ziad Ahmed, NIOT Board Member)
