COR@9: RENEWING OUR MINDS ON RACE
In response to current health guidelines, we are postponing the second half of “Renewing Our Minds on Race” until we can gather in person again.
In the meantime, we continue to provide ways to press in to the learning journey that we’ve begun through a series of conversations on books and other resources.
The first book we are reading together is The Color of Compromise, by Jemar Tisby. We will be holding a few discussion groups on the book via Zoom. To receive information on the Zoom calls, sign up to receive our email updates.
Discussion #1: Chapters 1-5, April 28 @7:30 p.m. C.T.
Discussion #2: Chapters 6-8, June 2nd @7:30 p.m. C.T.
Discussion #3: Chapters 9 – end, June 23rd @7:30 p.m. C.T.
