Book Study: The Sum of Us

September 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until October 7, 2021

Join Pastor Cathy as we spend five weeks reading and exploring themes in Heather McGhee’s book, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. One of today’s most insightful and influential thinkers, Heather McGhee, offers a powerful exploration of inequality and the lesson that generations of Americans have failed to learn: Racism has a cost for everyone – not just for people of color.

There will be two book study groups available:

Tuesdays, Sept. 28, Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Thursdays, Sept. 30, Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28, 12:30-2:00 p.m.

Zoom information will be sent with registration. Contact Pastor Cathy at cathy@fumcaustin.org for additional information.
