Can history help us dismantle white supremacy?
(Taught by Dr. Koach Baruch Frazier)
7:00 - 8:30 pm at CRC

What can we learn from the race riots of the 1900s to dismantle white supremacy now? This month we will examine the history and roots of race riots, using their story as our guide, and discuss ways we can respond to the recurring issues. These sessions are a deeper exploration of where we began in our Yom Kippur breakout session. Everyone is welcome to join us. For more information, contact Koach drkb.frazier@gmail.com.
