Race in a Post-Obama America: The Church Responds

Sundays, April 23– May 14, from 9:45-10:45am
Location: Room 203
Facilitators: Blair Hartman, Ben Joyner, Shannon Taylor, Natalie Wolf

Recent events in the United States have provoked not just a willingness to discuss issues of racism in this country but a desire to do something meaningful to confront it. Race in a Post-Obama America offers concerned Christians the chance to clarify terms and issues around racism and discern how to respond.

The class includes time to learn basic definitions and history around racism in the United States; be presented with current thoughts on institutional racism and what is to be done to end it; and learn about specific actions individuals and churches are taking.

This intergenerational class is a continuation of the previous term elective, “Facing Racism,” with added leadership. Come join in the engaging dialogue that takes place when youth and adults gather around such an important topic.
