Racism to be discussed at Lifetree Cafe

The issue of racism will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.

The program, "The Black and White Truth About Racism: Will We Ever Live in a Colorblind World?," features an exclusive filmed interview with Daryl Davis, a black man who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan.

"I wanted to question those people who would lynch me for no other reason than the color of my skin," Davis said. "Why do you hate me when you don't even know me?"

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.

Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4697 or
