Race Literacy 101

September 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - December 18, 2019 @ 8:30 pm

Little Lights is once again hosting a Race Literacy 101 class this fall starting September 18th.  Slots often fill quickly.  You can register now.  

This is an 11 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.  The class includes education on the history of the ideology of race, some scripture study, and times for discussion and dialogue.  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 better educate attendees on what this thing called “race” actually is.  The class also seeks to be part of the solution in not only educating people on the issue, but also bring hope to an issue that has caused so much pain, tension, and division.

There are usually two guest speakers for the course and there is also an informal dinner after the conclusion of the class.  The class is led by Little Lights’ Executive Director, Steve Park.  Feel free to forward to others.

There is no cost for the class, but donations to Little Lights are appreciated.  The class is open to the public so please feel free to share with others.

When: Wednesday evenings starting September 18th, 2019 at 7pm

Where: Little Lights Center, 760 7th Street SE, DC, 20003
