Open Coffees are a gathering for Change Makers of all types and serve as an opportunity to meet some of Omaha's most impacting and influential people. Each week we invite a special guest to join us for a Facebook Live session to share their personal story and allow attendees to ask key questions that might inspire new ideas and spark action! Before and after, attendees enjoy connecting in person with an incredible room full of people making a difference in our community! For those unable to attend, follow the Open Coffee Omaha Facebook page 8am every Tuesday morning to catch the live broadcast and post your questions for the guest under the live stream!

June 23rd join us for Open Coffee with Peggy Jones, M.F.A. — she is an Associate Professor of Black Studies, Graduate and Women’s Studies faculty member, and the Associate Director of Women’s and Gender Studies, all at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She received an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Nebraska Arts Council for her play, “The Journey,” which tells the story of Aaron Douglas, the first black graduate from the art department at UNL in 1922. Her interests include intersections between language and racial identity, and media (mis)representations of race and gender. She is also a curriculum consultant who's creating a program on educational restorative justice.
