Mercy & Justice Book Study: The Second

June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In The Second, historian and award-winning, bestselling author of White Rage Carol Anderson powerfully illuminates the history and impact of the Second Amendment, how it was designed, and how it has consistently been constructed to keep African Americans powerless and vulnerable. The Second is neither a “pro-gun” nor an “anti-gun” book; the lens is the citizenship rights and human rights of African Americans. Through compelling historical narrative merging into the unfolding events of today, Anderson’s penetrating investigation shows that the Second Amendment is not about guns but about anti-Blackness, shedding shocking new light on another dimension of racism in America. Zoom invitation will be sent with registration. Contact Pastor Cathy at cathy@fumcaustin.org for additional information. This book will be released June 1. We encourage you to pre-order/purchase the book locally at Black Pearl Books or Book People. Book Study Dates are June 15, June 22 and June 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Zoom.
