We would like to invite you to a special opportunity to learn from, and engage online, the authors of Unsettling Truths, Mark Charles and Soong-Chan Rah, on October 24, 9-11am (Eastern Time). We offer a synopsis of each chapter of this tough but true book and hope you will study all or most of it. Despite all the progress we have made in the area of human dignity as it relates to civil rights, women’s rights, rights of LGBTQ siblings, we are still dragged by the dehumanizing meta narrative called the Doctrine of Discovery that injects the virus of racial casteism into our body politic. Such a narrative influences the subconscious and impacts unconscious biases unless we are constantly aware and vigilant. A heightened awareness of the violence directed toward black and brown bodies has caused us to pause and face up to the American iteration of Caste as a system.
If you are determined to humbly navigate unsettling truths and equipping yourself to consider building beloved community where you are, please register for this event right away.
We would love to have you join us for this significant opportunity to learn together.
Register for the event HERE.
Kindly contact Steve Richards if you have any questions.
