June 24th - "Race: The Power of an Illusion" - Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn. "RACE: The Power of an Illusion", a three-part film and facilitated discussion series, sponsored by Community Wide Dialogue to End Racism of Auburn & Cayuga County.  This series has been offered in many communities nationwide, including very recently by our neighbors to the south in Ithaca and Tompkins County. RACE: The Power of an Illusion - the division of the world's peoples into distinct groups - "red," "black," "white" or "yellow" peoples - has became so deeply imbedded in our psyches, so widely accepted, many would promptly dismiss as crazy any suggestion of its falsity. Yet, that's exactly what this provocative, new three-hour series by California Newsreel claims. Race - The Power of an Illusion questions the very idea of race as biology, suggesting that a belief in race is no more sound than believing that the sun revolves around the earth. Yet race still matters. Just because race doesn't exist in biology doesn't mean it isn't very real, helping shape life chances and opportunities.  Free and open to the public, 6:30-8:30pm. www.auburnpublictheater.org 315-253-6669
