What's at Stake:
Racism and white supremacy are as pervasive as the very air we breathe. No part of life in the US is free of these twin, life-distorting, life-threatening diseases – and that includes this church. While our nation made strides with emancipation, Reconstruction and Civil Rights, it feels as if gains are slipping. Old demons are back to haunt us, dividing us, pitting one skin color against another. God help us! Old South Church, in the name of our God, aims to overcome racism by working toward equality, diversity, justice.
What We're Doing:
Because we believe racism is anathema to God, Old South’s (G)RACE Speaks is an evolving conversation, examination, and education on matters of race within the life and community of this church. In addition, with partner churches and organizations we are committed to exposing and overcoming racism and prejudice in all its forms – personal, relational, institutional, systemic.
