January 31, 10 a.m.
The journey of education and love continues on Sunday, January 31st, at 10 a.m. in Wesley Hall.
All are invited to watch and discuss Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s video “Vital Conversations on Racism.” Dr. Robin DiAngelo is the author of “What Does it Mean to Be White?”
By developing White Racial Literacy, she has been an anti-racist educator, and has heard justifications of racism by white men and women in her workshops for over two decades. This justification, which she calls “white fragility,” is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation.
Come join Sunday school classes and members of our church family as we engage in compassionate conversation about racism and the ways we can make a difference through our church and community.
