Mercy and Justice Book Study: How to Be an Antiracist (Thursdays)

July 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Zoom Online
The work of resisting racism continues. Join Pastor Cathy Stone as we read and discuss How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.
