"White Privilege": Let's Talk

We will be studying an adult education curriculum designed by the United Church of Christ (UCC), which invites participants to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive and bold conversations on race.

"As an extension of our ongoing commitment to Sacred Conversations on race, it is time that this still largely white denomination wrestle with its investment in whiteness, and learn all it can about the manifestations and impact of White Privilege," said the Rev. John Dorhauer, UCC general minister and president. "This Curriculum, written by five gifted authors with decades of experience teaching about race and privilege, is presented to enable such dialogue to take place at every level of the Church."

The UCC white privilege curriculum is divided into four key focus areas, each one introducing a different aspect of the dynamic of white privilege. Each of the four sections will have material from all five authors, with every author contributing a different perspective to the subject matter.

Please join us for this important discussion, beginning on Sunday, September 17th and continuing each Sunday (except for October 28th) until the completion of the curriculum. We meet at 9 am in the Foster Room.  All are welcome.
