About The Event

Join  Lisette Eskam on Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8:00 PM as she leads a  group of people through a 10 week series on Jemar Tisby's video series,  "How to Fight Racism".  This group will discuss practical ways to  confront racism by watching videos, participating in selected readings,  and engaging in group discussion.

To learn more you can watch a video preview (https://youtu.be/vc5wydZvBU0) or read a description of Tisby's book below:

"Racism  is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to  confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color  of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about  racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight  against it.

How  to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on  suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an  array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and  in everyday life through a simple framework--the A.R.C. Of Racial  Justice--that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions  and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is  for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and  courageously confront it.

Tisby  roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we  embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning  in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and  suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope  that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to  reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for  human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Readers of the book will  come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive  ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long  stratified by skin color."
