Sankofa and Sawubona: Anti-racism in the Beloved Community

Start Date: Sep 17, 2020

This class is now full

So many of us are interested in exploring anti-racism, and given the current climate, it’s important now more than ever. In this class we’ll take a different approach to the anti-racism conversation to ground it in what we are moving towards: a vision of belonging, flourishing and restoration (i.e. the Kingdom of God) as described by Dr. Martin Luther King’s ideas of the Beloved Community.

Participants will have weekly homework in the form of a short article or podcast to listen to. Each class will include lecture, Q&A (not live, but facilitated by the chat feature), and a time of prayer.

Thursday nights, 7:30-9:00pm CT

Class Format: Online via Zoom
Duration: 4 weeks
Instructor(s): Osheta Moore
