From Steve Park, Executive Director and Founder of Little Lights, invites you to be involved in their Race Literacy 101 class, happening this Fall. Please see the details below:
Racial Literacy 101 is a discussion group that will meet together weekly to learn and discuss authentically and thoughtfully on the issue of race and racism in an honest yet grace-filled environment. There will be times of personal sharing, interactive activities, and classroom style learning.
We will be viewing “Race: Power of an Illusion” video series (PBS) as well as other materials to learn more about the history and the “science” of Race to help us be better educated and more racially “literate” rather than acting on presuppositions and assumptions. We will also look at some relevant passages in the Bible and address the increasing racial divide in society and the church.
We will also discuss ways to be part of the solution regarding the racial divide and work toward helping one another find healing this collective wound. There is also an informal dinner after the conclusion of the class. Feel free to forward to others. There is no cost for the class, but donations to Little Lights are appreciated.
When: Wednesday evenings starting Oct 11th at 7pm
Where: Little Lights Center, 760 7th Street SE, DC, 20003
