Here are seven lessons I’m learning from my African American friends about having racial conversations with them using my coaching skills.
We do not erase history when Confederate monuments come down. We want to dismantle a one-sided telling of history that glorifies the enslavement of black bodies and communities as a way to perpetuate present racial injustice.
The goal of Christian education racial justice is NOT to teach Christians on how to become “not racists.” The goal is to teach how we can be antiracist.
I shared what I’m learning about racial justice at a “Conversations towards Reconciliation” gathering hosted by the Charlottesville Clergy Collective, Thursday, May 23, 2019.
