Antiracism Discussion
Sunday, August 7, 2022 11:30 a.m. Following Worship Service

Ibram X. Kendi has created The Antiracist Deck – 100 conversation starters on power, equity and justice.  We’ll use these cards to have an antiracist conversation after Sunday service on August 7.

About Ibram X. Kendi and The Antiracist Deck
Ibram X. Kendi has raised our awareness of the importance of persistent, dedicated antiracist work. Being antiracist is an everyday commitment; in order to build a more equitable and just society, we must be diligent, making antiracist choices at every turn. Meaningful change can start at the micro-level; these conversations starters will help you along the way.

When did you first become aware of racism? When did you first become aware of your race? Where does racism exist? What does “resistance” mean to you? Why is talking about race important? Why now?

Kendi gave the Ware Lecture at this year’s General Assembly. He is the author of many books including How to Be an Antiracist.
