View Videos for Session 9: found below. Includes video by Dr. Robin DiAngelo, produced for the General Commission on Religion and Race. Discuss and reflect upon what arises within each person. If time permits, also view video featuring Dr. Ibram X Kendi below as well. The video with Anthony Peterson is a TEDx Talk he gave entitled "What I am Learning from my Grandchildren - Truths About Race."
Read and follow the steps in Chapter “Dismantling and Disentangling form White Supremacy Culture and Racism.” Do each exercise and discuss thoroughly what arises within each person. What are the points of resistance? What are the “Ahas?” What are the points of personal connection?
Reflections, reactions, reticence, and relishing.
Wrap up the session by considering what each participant feels called to pursue.
Close in Prayer.
