Event description

Description

**THIS IS A FIVE-SESSION EVENT - TAKING PLACE ON THE FIVE MONDAYS IN OCTOBER**

**PARTICIPATION IS LIMITED TO 20 - PLEASE CALL 401.722.7934 TO REGISTER**

Merciful Conversations on Race is an adult education curriculum designed to invite members of the church and the wider community to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive and bold conversations on race. We will be meeting from 7 PM to 9 PM every Monday evening in October at the church.

Of this curriculum, UCC General Minister and President, the Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer says, “as an extension of our ongoing commitment to Sacred Conversations on race, it is time that this still largely white denomination (90%) wrestle with its investment in whiteness, and learn all it can about the manifestations and impact of White Privilege. This Curriculum, written by five gifted authors with decades of experience teaching about race and privilege, is presented to enable such dialogue to take place at every level of the Church."

The UCC white privilege curriculum is divided into four key focus areas, each one introducing a different aspect of the dynamic of white privilege. Each of the four sections in the guide will have material from all five authors, with every author contributing a different perspective to the subject matter.

The curriculum and the sessions will lead participants through four areas of focus:

- telling the story of your spiritual journey through the lens of race

- looking at the dynamic of a culture in which whiteness is the established norm

- learning how America attaches a cash value to whiteness

- inviting the participants to commit to becoming an ally in the pursuit of racial equity.


We invite all to come, join us as we engage in a safe, meaningful, substantive, and bold conversation on privilege.
