Dismantling Racism Book Discussion
- Date: Wednesday, August 26, 2020
- Time: 10:30am–12:00pm
- Location: Zoom Online Meeting
Our Dismantling Racism Group has selected a book for us to explore as a congregation this summer: Ijeoma Oluo’s, So You Want to Talk About Race. If you’re not familiar with this important text, an overview and list of reviews may be found here: www.indiebound.org/book/9781580058827. We made a bulk order through Wisdom Book Center, a black-owned bookstore located in Woodlawn. Cost: $17. We encourage you to support this local bookseller. But however you obtain your own copy, please join the discussion.
We will host four daytime and four evening conversations (via Zoom) throughout July and August. On Wednesdays (July 15, 29 and August 12, 26) from 10:30 a.m. to noon, facilitated by Ken Kovacs, and Thursdays (July 16, 30 and August 13, 27) from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., facilitated by Jeff Bolognese.
We have also learned that parents and teachers at Hillcrest Elementary School in Catonsville will also be reading this text, and they’ve opened up their study to the wider community.
The Zoom invitation/links will be sent out in early July. Consider being part of the conversation.
