Anti-racism speaker set for city park

VERGENNES — The next in a series of anti-racism events on the Vergennes will be held on Saturday, July 11, when city resident Rose Archer will speak on racial equality.
Archer, a recent Brandeis University graduate, followed fellow Vergennes resident Alicia Grangent on the city bandstand on June 13, when both persons of color gave well-received talks about the daily discrimination they experienced in their lives.
The latest “Voices in the Park” event, three of which have been organized by Waltham resident Elizbeth Ryan and one by the Vergennes Union High School Racial and Social Justice Alliance, will begin at 4 p.m. that Saturday.
Organizers ask those who attend to wear masks and observe social distancing recommendations, and also suggest bringing chairs.
