Racial Justice Team Book Discussion

How to Raise an Antiracist and The Other Talk

October 23, 11:30am-1:00pm in the Chapel

Calling all parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, teachers & caregivers, and anyone interested in thinking about how to raise justice-seeking antiracists and create an antiracist world for them to thrive in. Join in a discussion facilitated by the Racial Justice Team of how we, as individuals and a congregation, can talk to our children about racism. Recent tragedies and reckonings compel us to understand how our children and youth are experiencing race and how we can support them in their understanding of race and the role they can play in advancing racial justice. We will gather for food and conversation on Sunday, October 23rd after the service (in the chapel or outdoors if the weather permits!). To inform the conversation we ask you to read one or both of these books and/or listen to one or more of these podcasts:

  • How to Raise an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi (The book that every parent, caregiver, and teacher needs to raise the next generation of antiracist thinkers).
  • The Other Talk: Reckoning with Our White Privilege by Brendan Kiely with Jason Reynolds (Offers young readers a way to understand one’s own white privilege and why allyship is so vital, so that we can all start doing our part—today.)
  • KQED Forum with Ibram X. Kendi on “How to Raise an Antiracist” (38 min. recording)
  • Good Life Project episode with Ibram X. Kendi (1 hr. recording available on multiple podcast platforms)
  • Poured Over: Brendan Kiely on The Other Talk (41 min. recording at this link and on other podcast platforms)
