The Race Matters team focuses on the personal “within” work as it relates to issues of racial justice, a top priority for Mayflower members.
We will create spaces where we can understand the spiritual and personal costs of racial injustice. We will increase Mayflower’s engagement with multi-cultural/multi-racial experiences in preparation for becoming a more diverse church community and a more effective ally in our racial justice work.
Begins Tuesday, December 1, 7:00 pm Join the Mayflower Race Matters team for an interactive Zoom discussion of Isabel Wilkerson’s book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Wilkerson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and this, her latest book, examines how the U.S. attitude toward race reflects a well developed caste system, similar to that in place in India or in regards to Germany during the Nazi era. You are welcome to participate in the discussion whether or not you have read or finished the book.
This is the first in a continuing series of book discussions facilitated by Race Matters. Next up will be How to Be an Antiracist by Ibrim X Kendi. To participate, please email Beth Kittelson for the Zoom address: email@example.com.
