June 12, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The first of three conversations on the book Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race by Debby Irving will be at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 725 S. High Street, Harrisonburg. The discussions will be on:
Monday, June 12 to discuss parts 1-3 of the book;
Monday, July 17 to discuss parts 4-6, and
Monday, August 14 to discuss parts 7-9.
All discussion sessions will meet from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm in the sanctuary.
Waking Up White describes the author’s journey through a privileged childhood, young adulthood shaken by realizing that her worldview was not shared by others, then years of struggling to understand herself and others, and to promote racial equity in her community. Some local congregations have already used this book in their adult education programs. Readers enthusiastically report insights into current affairs that arose as they studied Waking Up White. Copies of the book can be purchased online or by calling Susan Sheridan at 540-325-2845.
