Anti-Black Racism Book Challenge

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This Lent, we are challenging the congregation to read one book about anti-Black racism, and then spend an evening discussing the book with others. Churches in the North Toronto Cluster are leading these discussion nights on Zoom. Read on for details of the discussion of:

The Skin We’re In, Desmond Cole
Tuesday, March 16th at 7 p.m.

Maggie Wilkinson from ESG will moderate the discussion

Cole is a Black Canadian, briefly a journalist for the Toronto Star before being unjustly dismissed for being too much of an activist. His book is an excellent chronicle of the acts of racism which made news ( or were kept quiet) in 2017, mostly in Toronto. Cole does a very good job of providing insight into how anti-Black racism works on the personal and systemic level in Toronto.

Zoom link posted soon.
