The PNEC Racial Justice Ministry Team is offering this faith and film study based on dismantling structural racism. By engaging with stories on the movie screen, we hope to encourage discussions that not only raise awareness about the deep roots of racism, but also serve to inspire us to ask what work God is calling us to do next.
Join us on Tuesday, August 24 for an introductory session that will set the scene for the five movies. We will watch clips and ask questions as we begin to dive deep into our own experiences with antiracism.
This series leads a discussion group through five films that can help them see and understand concrete examples of racism and its effects. “The films force us to see racism as the ugly, concrete evil that affects all of us. Each film tells us a story that draws us in, helping us to feel how racism affects people and, in all too many cases, destroys lives,” said series author Dr. Edward McNulty.
Discussion guides will be distributed to those participating. I encourage you to participate to theextent you are able. The movies are hard to watch, but you won’t regret it. You, too, may be changed. Click Here to fill out the registration form. DEADLINE TO REGISTER…August 14
