Tuesday at 7 PM on Zoom
Dates and Time: Tuesday evenings, 7-8:30pm from July 6th through August 10th
All are welcome to participate.
Join us for a book study on Ibram X. Kendi’s book, “How to be Anti Racist”. The purpose of this book study is to read and reflect on the concepts in the book, and to explore our own relationships to race, power and privilege, and to deepen our capacity to interrupt racist behaviour when we encounter it. We will consider how the concepts in Kendi’s book play out in our lives, and look at how anti-racist action relates to Christian teachings. This book study is the first activity in what we intend to be an ongoing conversation about the impacts of racism and how we as people of faith can respond. If you feel called to help create this ministry, please let us know.
The book is widely available at local bookstores or can be ordered online, either in print or as an audio book read by the author.
Topics covered will include:
- the historic roots of race as a concept
- the impacts of systemic racism in our world today
- our role as people of faith in combatting racist systems and actions
- how to enact anti-racism in our daily lives
We will need to pre-register participants, using the email email@example.com with participation being capped at 12 individuals. If we could have people register no later than July 2nd, that would be great.
Once participants register this will be a closed group in order to make safe space for folks to share their experiences and explore concepts of race, power and privilege.
