    “For it isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it" (E. Roosevelt)

    About this event

    Epworth United Methodist Church is partnering with Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute to launch a book club focusing on racial justice.

    More than a book club, more than a conversation, this is transformative work, a call to action to change how we live and behave towards others.

    Purpose

    We’re planting seeds to grow conversations about systemic racism in our community as well as the wider community.

    We want to engage in productive conversations with others to learn from those who have not lived the same experiences we have.

    Expectations

    • Registration required (free will donations accepted online)
    • Commit to attend at least six (6) of the sessions.

    January 12 & 26

    February 9 & 23

    March 9 & 23

    April 13 & 27

    • Follow the Conversation Touchstones shared in Session 1.
    • Examine our own biases and privileges.
    • Continue the conversations with family, friends, social groups, colleagues, places of worship.

    How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

    **If you need help obtaining a book, contact us at communitybkcl@gmail.com.**

    “The good news is that racist and antiracist are not fixed identities. We can be a racist one minute and an antiracist the next. What we say about race, what we do about race, in each moment, determines what -- not who -- we are” (Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist).
