Frasier Honors Black History Month

Frasier will honor and celebrate Black History Month 2024 with two impactful events that delve into important conversations about race and equity.

Documentary Screening of This Is [Not] Who We Are

  • February 7, 7:00 pm
  • The Canyons Center at Frasier

Engage in a thought-provoking discussion with the filmmakers: Beret Strong, a writer, educator, and co-owner of Landlocked Films, has produced award-winning films shown on PBS and other stations; and Katrina Miller, a graduate of CU-Boulder, is a director, producer, videographer, narrator, and founding owner of Black Cat Productions. 

This Is [Not] Who We Are explores the history and contemporary experiences of Boulder’s Black residents. It focuses on the gap between Boulder’s self-image and the actualities of daily living. The discussion will pivot to what Boulder is doing to bridge this gap and what else can be done. 

Dialogue and Discussion Panel: “Toward Interracial and Intergenerational Equity in Boulder”

  • February 21, 7:00 pm
  • The Canyons Center at Frasier

Featuring a diverse panel of speakers:

  • Glenda Strong Robinson, a minister at the Second Baptist Church of Boulder, marched with Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1968, and received the Colorado History Commission’s lifetime achievement award
  • Rev. Pedro Silva, served as associate minister at Boulder’s First Congregational Church and is director of engagement at Younify, a nonprofit project whose mission is to reduce societal polarization
  • Jamaika Elliott, a student at CU-Boulder
  • Shawn O’Neil, an assistant teaching professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies/Center for African & African American Studies, CU-Boulder

The panel will explore opportunities for community engagement on pressing racial issues. Frasier resident Jim Mittelman  will serve as moderator for these events and encourage audience participation.

Both events are FREE and open to the public! We invite you to be a part of these enriching discussions. Mark your calendars and join us at Frasier in honoring the significance of Black History Month.
