Join Conversations on Racial Justice
Conversations on Racial Justice
Sunday, April 5
4:30-6:00 p.m. on Zoom 

Join us as we work to be anti-racists, seeking to undo racism in ourselves and to recognize and understand our participation in systemic racism. This group meets on first Sundays, 4:30-6:00 p.m., to discuss and learn more about racial oppression, issues of whiteness and racism, and other topics through videos, podcasts, and short articles.

On Sunday, April 5 we will continue the conversation using the web series "The Next Questions: Imagining How Expansive Racial Justice Can Be," produced and hosted by Austin Channing Brown. We’ll watch and discuss an interview with Andre Henry. As a musician and a writer, Andre has become a leading creative voice for the social justice movement in America. Encouraging us all to remember that “it doesn’t have to be this way,” Andre and the hosts discuss real ways to pursue justice in today’s America.
