Saturday, August 22, 12-1:15 PM
For our third session in this ongoing series of open discussions, we’ll meet online to discuss the book How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi, “A groundbreaking approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.”
Register HERE for this free event. All are welcome as we support each other in being a positive force for racial justice.
Accept – Educate – Self-Inquire – Act
Recap of Session 2: Our second meeting (July 18) was on Me and White Supremacy, by Layla Saad. Each participant spoke with vulnerability and deep care about the inquiries in this book, including realizations and personal challenges. Listening to each other’s reflections with embodied presence brought awareness of systemic racism to the forefront, similar to watching an educational film or reading an article.
Remember the 4 steps in the heading above, and the reminder: This is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s clear that racial justice work is lifelong work that will deepen over time. (Inspired by interview with Jennifer Hutton.)
