(G)RACE Speaks Anti-Racism Workshop

Date:
March 8, 2020
Time:
12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
Location:
Sam Johnson Room

February is Black History Month and we understand the church to be a place of reconciliation. (G)RACE Speaks offers a four-week curriculum to facilitate dialogue on the intra-racial church, intra = within or inside one group. Through personal stories, dialogues are focused on understanding and finding the means of dealing with conscious and unconscious behaviors that act as obstacles to inclusion and deepening relationships.

This curriculum was written by Deb Washington, Ph.D., our Church Moderator, who has served since 2005 as the Director of Diversity for Patient Care Health at MGH. Named one of the 100 influential people of color in Boston (2018), Dr. Washington received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Black Nurses Association in 2017. This four-part curriculum is open to everyone, and ideally participants will attend all sessions. To sign up or get more info, email Amo at amo@oldsouth.org. Childcare available on request.
