Race Literacy 101

March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This is an 11-week session study and discussion group that will meet together weekly to learn and discuss authentically and thoughtfully on the issue of race and racism in an honest yet grace-filled environment.  

There will be times of personal sharing, interactive activities, and classroom style learning.

We will be viewing Race: Power of an Illusion video series (PBS) as well as other materials to learn more about the history and the “science” of Race to help us be better educated and more racially “literate” rather than acting on presuppositions and assumptions.  We will also look at some relevant passages in the Bible and address the increasing racial divide in society and the church.

We will also discuss ways to be part of the solution regarding the racial divide and work toward helping one another find healing this collective wound. There is also an informal dinner after the conclusion of the class.

This is the 1st meeting of 11 that meets Wednesday evenings from 7:00p.m. to 8:30p.m.
