Omaha Table Talk: Appropriation vs. Appreciation

June 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


White people wearing dreadlocks? Non-native people with spirit animals? Do you really mean “Wakanda forever” if you aren’t black? Is it really ok to wear that headwrap just because one person from the community said so? Appropriation has been a hot button issue for a long time in America but has seen huge callouts in recent memory because of social media. Some well-intentioned people have pushed back claiming it’s not appropriation its appreciation. But who gets to decide? Our panelists have an idea. On Tuesday, June 11th come talk with the community about the do’s and don’ts on this hot topic.


Omaha Table Talk is a program which ensures everyone has a seat at the table – inviting all to take part in an open and honest dialogue about race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference, while enjoying a complimentary meal.
