Racial Justice Book Group
Date: May 14, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
We are reading How Does It Feel to be a Problem by Moustafa Bayoumi, an exploration of being young and Arab in America. Our group provides a safe and respectful place to address racism through the lens of the Gospel, and for discerning action steps in response. As the modern day prophet, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, said, It is an unhappy truth that racism is a way of life for the vast majority of white Americans, spoken and unspoken, acknowledged and denied, subtle and sometimes not so subtle - the disease of racism permeates and poisons the whole body politic. And I see nothing more urgent than for America to work passionately and unrelentingly-to get rid of the disease of racism. If you cannot join us please read along on your own. Everyone is welcome-men and high schoolers are especially invited to join us. Please email Mary de Rosas at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to RSVP.
