Waking Up White
(Sundays, November 12- December 17, Class Room 4)
Join Pastor Kim in a six-week study of the book, Waking Up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race, by Debby Irving.
None of us chooses our skin color at birth. Yet racial dynamics pervade our society and many of us who are white have not perceived how race affects our lives. Author Debby says, "My hope is that by sharing my sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, I offer a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As I unpack my own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, I reveal how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated my ill-conceived ideas about race.”
The book is needed to fully participate and is widely available at local bookstores and libraries, and at online booksellers including Amazon.
