Reflections on Racial Justice

Over the summer on behalf of People United Against Racism Rev. Erika Hewitt led a 6-part discussion group in our community on Ijeoma Oluo’s book So You Want to Talk About Race. Among the topics discussed were: racism, white privilege, intersectionality, microaggressions and cultural appropriation. Although some of these words may have been new to us, they inspired an honest dialog and sharing of how racism underlies what Oluo identifies as a systemic cultural divide. Join us as we hear personal reflections on the awareness and growth these book group discussions offered.
