The "Community Conversation about Prejudice" was led by human- and civil-rights activist Steve Wessler as part of the student-organized program, "Beyond the Bowdoin Hello," a week-long series of lectures, films and activities that gave students, staff, faculty and locals a chance to delve more deeply into matters around race, identity and bias.
