Good Shepherd Jericho Hosts Discussion on Historical Context of American Racism, September 18
JERICHO, VT – How far have we come as Americans in confronting racism? This is a topic that remains so insidious, intimidating and painful that we prefer not to talk about it in public for fear of what we might say or reveal, or how others might see or treat us. Join us at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, September 18, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 273 Vermont Route 15, Jericho, VT, for “How Did We Wind Up Here? The Historical Context of American Racism” led by University of Vermont history professor Harvey Amani Whitfield, PhD.
This is the first in a series of monthly forums where we wish to create a safe space to speak openly and honestly as people of good intent who seek the best for each other and our nation as we honestly face each other and the racial divisions of our past and present with the hope of reconciliation. Each forum is a potluck gathering where we invite you to share a dish along with your thoughts.
