In Spring and Summer 2021, the Wallingford Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, Wallingford Public Schools, and Wallingford Public Library brought the community together to answer the questions “Who am I?” “Who are you?” and “Who are we?”
Inspired by the book Tell Me Who You Are: Sharing Our Stories of Race, Culture, & Identity, we shared our stories, listened, explored issues of identity and race, and celebrated what makes us unique as individuals and as a town.
What we did:
- Virtual author visit with Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi followed by a community conversation about race and identity
- Community art project in the Wallingford Public Library windows (facing Main Street). Students and members of the public of all ages contributed art and told us who they are! Watch this video of the display:
Thank you to everyone who took part in this initiative!
