Wednesday Night Conversations on Race in America
What does it mean to “wake up white” in 21st century America?
During January and February our Wednesday night fellowship conversation will focus on issues of race, racial reconciliation, and what these conversations mean in our contemporary world. The conversation will use Debby Irving’s book, “Waking Up White” as a launching pad for fierce and deep conversations with community leaders and advocates for racial equality in Jackson and beyond.
The book may be ordered through Lemuria locally and is available on Amazon.
