Sunday morning Lenten Study
“How to be an Anti-Racist” by Ibram X. Kendi
9:30 – 10:30 am in the Chapel and on Zoom February 26 – April 2.
Facilitated by Cindy Maxey and Carolyn Troha
Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism – and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to Be an Antiracist, This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.
Lent is a time for reflection, repentance, and reconciliation and a fitting season for this kind of study. HCC has been a leader for racial justice, and we hope this work will continue to be a cornerstone of our common mission. Please plan to join us. Individual purchase of the book is not necessary, but highly recommended. In order to finish by Easter, we will discuss 3 chapters per week.
2/26 Chapters 1-3
3/5 Chapters 4-6
3/12 Chapters 7-9
3/19 Chapters 10-12
