About the event
This event is the first time Jim Schutze and Rev. Peter Johnson will appear together on a public stage. The discussion will be moderated by Cheryl Smith, Publisher and Executive Director of I Messenger Media News Group (photo below). This conversation will be a frank, real, raw and honest presentation about Dallas' Civil Rights history. It will examine how race, class, politics and power shaped Dallas' past, present and the implications for the future. Attendees will see Dallas' history through the lens of the prolific writer, author, and historian Jim Schutze, and the Civil Rights Activist/Legend Rev. Peter Johnson. Rev. Peter Johnson's direct confrontation with the city's racist institutions and policies changed the history of Dallas politically, economically and socially. Come prepared for a 'no-holds barred' conversation about the REAL events and REAL people that still impact Dallas to this day.
