The Race Literacy 101 class is an 11-week study and discussion group that meets together weekly to learn and discuss authentically and thoughtfully on the issue of race and racism in an honest yet grace-filled environment. This class is offered twice a year during the fall and spring.

Class format includes personal sharing, interactive activities, and classroom style learning.

Class participants engage the Race: Power of an Illusion video series (PBS) among other materials to learn about the history and the “science” of race and to become better educated and more racially “literate,” rather than acting on presuppositions and assumptions.  The class also looks at some relevant passages in the Bible and addresses the increasing racial divide in society and the church.

We also discuss ways to be part of the solution regarding the racial divide and work toward helping one another find healing of this collective wound.  The class concludes with an  informal dinner. There is no cost for the class, but donations to Little Lights are appreciated.
