Healing the Heart of America Book Club: Conversations on Race – September

September 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

|

Zoom

Facilitated by Linda Patterson

Do you wonder why this society is so polarized about racial justice?  Would you welcome the opportunity to participate in a safe, open exploration of this sensitive topic?  If so, join us in taking a reading journey to learn about racism: its history in this country, what perpetuates it and how we might overcome the forces that divide us. Bring a curious mind and a willingness to hear different points of view.

On September 26, we’ll be discussing Part I of our next selection, The  Conversation; How Seeking and Speaking the Truth about Racism Can Radically Transform Individuals and Organizations by Dr. Robert W. Livingston, which was published in February 2021. Dr. Livingston, a social psychologist and one of the nation’s leading experts on the science underlying bias and racism, provides a road map for uprooting entrenched biases and shares candid, fact-based perspectives on race that can lead to increased awareness, empathy, and hopefully, action.
