From Racial Literacy to Racial Healing
Tuesday 16 February at 19h30 via Zoom.
George Floyd’s tortuous murder on 25 May, under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, captured on video, made it possible for millions of us to see this act of inhumanity “right before our own eyes.” Witnessing this act of violence has stirred the hearts and minds of “good people” who never before felt compelled to be part of the solution to racial violence and inequity. In cities all around the world, people have taken to their local streets calling for racial justice. If you are one of those “good people,” who has suddenly awakened to the reality of life for non-white people and are now looking for opportunities to learn, to evolve and to act in ways that move society along the continuum towards equality, equity, dignity, reparation and justice for all people, I invite you to step up and step out on your own journey in “Racial Literacy to Racial Healing.”
The invitation is ours as Christians, to explore our faith and prayer in order to heal racially as White people and Black people! On 16 February, we will travel together. After our interactive session, you will have an opportunity to continue working through a series of curated articles and questionnaires on-line.
