My Grandmother’s Hands Book Discussion, Part 2

October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

All are invited to read the first section of My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem and then participate in the 2nd meeting of the book discussion led by Pastor Lydia on October 26 at 7:00 PM in the Courtyard. If the weather does not cooperate, we will move inside to the Centrum so please bring a mask.

A bit about the book: With eloquence and grace, Resmaa Menakem masterfully lays out the missing piece in the puzzle of why, despite so many good intentions, we have not achieved racial justice. Yes, we need to understand white supremacy, but as Menakem so skillfully explains, white supremacy is not rational and we won’t end it with our intellect alone. White supremacy is internalized deep into our bodies. We must begin to understand it as white body supremacy and go to the depth of where it is stored, within our collective bones and muscles.
