Anti-Black Racism Book Challenge

March 3 @ 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:

Me and White Supremacy, Layla F. Saad
Wednesday, March 3rd at 7 p.m.

Anne Simmonds of Rosedale United will moderate the discussion

Please bring paper and pen to this discussion.

Me and White Supremacy: A 28-Day Challenge to Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too. The book goes beyond the original workbook by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and includes expanded definitions, examples, and further resources.
