05/09/21 - How to Fight Racism: Courageous Christianity and the Journey toward Racial Justice
Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
How to Fight Racism provides a practical framework for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers a biblical approach to antiracist work – one rooted in sound research and biblical knowledge. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple model – the ARC of Racial Justice – that helps readers consistently interrogate their behaviors and develop a disposition toward equity and action. This study is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.
Participants are encouraged to get a copy of Tisby’s book, “How to Fight Racism” to read along with the 8-week DVD series. However, even without having a copy of the book, all are welcomed to join in all or any sessions as able.
