The Race Thing Anniversary Show

July 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

Join Tori Paxon and Heena Paracha, hosts of the media company The Race Thing Inc, as they celebrate their first year of amplifying the voices of the Shore’s most overlooked communities.

Tori and Heena started their media company last summer as a way to raise awareness of racial injustice in our community. In addition to offering lively commentary on current news, they feature interviews with community members to shed light on systemic and racial barriers. They highlight Black, Indiginous, People of Color to share their experiences of race, racism and the legacy they want to leave behind.

To celebrate their successful first season, The Race Thing is hosting a live Anniversary show in partnership with the Avalon Foundation. The evening will include conversations with former guests on the show (Samantha Martinez, Kyle Hanes, Paul Tue III, Imani Black and Drs. Sanlare Gordon and Kulveen Virdee) about their experiences with race and racism in healthcare, education, and activism, as well as live music by local recording artist and songwriter Marlee.

Tickets are $40.  Purchase here.
