Racism Book/Study Group

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

For our next meeting, we will finish the last three sections of the White Supremacy Culture document by Tema Okun: Progress is bigger, more; Objectivity; and Right to comfort.

As with the other sections, please spend some time thinking about these three characteristics. Examine whether they show up in you or any of your communities, home, work, school, church, family, etc. And what that looks like. And then think about the antidotes and whether any of them are things you think would be helpful, are any of them things you might be able to shift?

Please also visit the UUA’s Dismantling White Supremacy page for more information and perspectives.

The group began in July 2018. It will generally meet monthly. We will share and listen until everyone has had a chance to share once and then discuss. All are welcome and asked to do the reading in advance.  We have read UUs of Color, Centering and Black Pioneers in a White Denomination and Darkening the Doorways and engaged the document White Supremacy Culture, by Tema Okun. Books are available for purchase or loan at the Ending Racism table on Sundays.
