Dismantle racism in your own life

Mar 9, 2018

The work to dismantle racism and remove prejudice in our community requires conversation and self-reflection. Here are some ideas and resources to help guide you on this journey:

  • Read Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy or other books and plan a book study
  • Take a church trip(s) to the Civil Rights Museum and MLK Center with discussion to follow
  • Research the history of your parish, your neighborhood, your county in the history of civil rights and segregation, and share it with your parish
  • Watch a film and have dinner and discussion afterward. Titles include the following:
    • Selma
    • Banished: How Whites Drove Blacks Out of Towns in America
    • Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North
