Race, Church, and Society - New Park Hill Discussion Group
· Do you want to go deeper in your understanding of race and racism in American history, institutions and culture?
· Are you willing to undertake with others a journey of self-discovery about your own attitudes around race and your unconscious biases?
· Would you like to figure out how you can be a better advocate for justice in your community, your church, your country?
If so, join us as for a new monthly on-line discussion group entitled Race, Church, and Society. The group will meet via Zoom on the 4th Monday of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. Our next meeting is March 22nd.
For our meetings, we may read and discuss books, articles, and movies, watch Ted Talks, and share our own experiences. We’ll also suggest at least one action you can take each month to support people of color who are on the forefront of this fight for greater justice.
March: We'll look at the concept of Intersectionality, which Wikipedia defines as a “framework for understanding how aspects of a person’s social and political identities combine to create different modes of discrimination and privilege."
April: We will honor Earth Day by focusing on environmental justice and the disproportionate health impact felt by those who live in communities marred by pollution. Here’s a good article on that issue: Here are the environmental justice stories to watch in 2020 (grist.org).
May: A joint study with Temple Micah of the book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, by Isabel Wilkerson.
