"How to be an Antiracist" Discussion
Sunday, March 15
Here we are — 150 years after the Civil War, 55 years after the Civil Rights Act, only 3 years after the first African-American president — and we still wrestle with racism.
Another way to look at the race issue can be found in “How to be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi. Kendi looks beyond the personal to study the issue of race from the perspective of ethics, history, law and science. The solution to the race problem will lie in implementing antiracist policies, he says.
The Rev. Hal Bruen will lead a discussion on “How to be an Antiracist” on Sunday, March 15, at 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall. We will use small group discussions and personal sharing to tackle this delicate topic head on.
In the meantime, buy or borrow a copy of the book. Kendi is a New York Times bestselling author and the founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University.

This event is part of a continuing series sponsored by the PGUMC Church and Society Committee. We seek to explore different points of view about racism.
