Advocacy Committee Book Discussiona: How To Be An Antiracist

Jul, 30, 2020

As part of First Presbyterian Church’s work in becoming anti-racist, the Advocacy Committee’s Plowshares Book Group will discuss How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.

Named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, Time magazine, NPR, The Washington Post, Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews, this book uses the author’s own life journey to show us why becoming antiracistwhich is not the same as not being a racist–is as essential as it is difficult. Equal parts memoir, history, and social commentary, this book is honest, brave, and necessary.

The congregation is invited to participate in a Zoom book discussion sponsored by the Advocacy Committee, to be held on Thursday, July 30, from 6:30-8 p.m. Register for this event in advance by contacting Nan Clarke to receive a link for the discussion.

The Plowshares Book Group is an ongoing effort by the Advocacy Committee to learn more about issues facing our community and to both deepen our faith and our relationships with each other.
