Educational disparities between white, black and Latino students will be the subject of a community dialogue 6-8 p.m. Monday at the East Library, 5500 N. Union Blvd.

The event is sponsored by Food for Thought, The Gazette and Rocky Mountain PBS and is part of Diversity Week. It is free and open to the public, no reservations are required.

The dialogue will explore the "Losing Ground" series of stories featured in The Gazette in January that reported on disparities in key indicators of education, economic well-being and wellness among whites, blacks and Latinos in Colorado and El Paso County.

A panel discussion will include Kevin Vaughan, a reporter with the I-News Network, which produced the "Losing Ground" report; Andre Spencer, superintendent of Harrison School District 2; Theresa Newsom of the Black Educator's Network; Felix Lopez, vice president of student success at Pikes Peak Community College; Julie Fahey, principal of Queen Palmer Elementary School in Colorado Springs; and Kee Warner, associate vice chancellor for diversity and inclusiveness with the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

For information call 213-7375. See the "Losing Ground" series at gazette.com.
