2020 Outreach and Service Webinar
Outreach and Service Committee is planning a series of three webinars for CPMC congregations, small groups, committees or individuals, the last three Tuesdays of February 2020. Darrell (Drick) Boyd will speak on “Musings of a Recovering Racist.” He is Professor of Social Transformation at Eastern University, Philadephia, PA.
The first session will address key terms related to race discussions that are often used inappropriately. The second session will look at the reasons race is such a difficult topic for white people to talk about. In the third session he will draw from the book he is currently working on, Disrupting Whiteness: Talking to White Folks About Race. He will share some ways we can broach and engage in the difficult conversations about race-related issues in our families, with our friends and in our churches.
There will be time for discussion and questions. We encourage you to engage with these webinars in local groups.
No pre-registration required. Follow the links on the right to get to the webinars.
