Anti-Racism Parent Book Group: Sign-Ups Open

Four hardback books

The Anti-Racism Parent Book Group is finishing up its first read, and we are opening the group to new UUC parents who would like to participate. Beginning the week of February 21,  we’ll be reading the book Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race by Beverly Daniel Tatum, PhD (the 20th Anniversary Edition, published in 2017). Given the content of this book, we’re also opening the group up to teachers and other educators.

Over the course of 8 meetings, participants will discuss Tatum’s writing about racial identity development for children and teens, and how it applies to their own and their children’s lives. In addition to book discussion, this group will include contemplation practices like Lectio divina, and will incorporate the use of videos, music, and podcasts.

The Anti-Racism Parent Book Group has been meeting on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 8:00–9:30 p.m. If you would like to participate in this book group, but that time doesn’t work, please let us know your preferred meeting time in the sign-up form.
