UCC curriculum on White Privilege engages and encourages sacred conversations on race

From UCC.org The United Church of Christ - anticipating an August 1 release of  "White Privilege – Let's Talk," an adult education curriculum designed to invite members to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive and bold conversations on race - is launching  a series of free webinars on the subject in June, in partnership with the Center for Progressive Renewal. "As an extension of our ongoing commitment to Sacred Conversations on race, it is time that this still largely white denomination wrestle with its investment in whiteness, and learn all it can about the manifestations and impact of White Privilege," said the Rev. John Dorhauer, UCC general minister and president. "This Curriculum, written by five gifted authors with decades of experience teaching about race and privilege, is presented to enable such dialogue to take place at every level of the Church." Presenters include The Rev. Traci Blackman, Acting Executive Minister of UCC Justice and Witness Ministries; The Rev. John Dorhauer, UCC General Minister and President; The Rev. Da Vita D. McAllister, Assoc. Conference Minister for Leadership and Vitality at the CT Conference, UCC; The Rev. John Paddock, Rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Dayton, Ohio; and The Rev. Stephen Ray, Professor of Systematic Theology at Garrett Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL, and an ordained UCC minister. Read more here
