Join us for a faculty-led 4-week virtual course for faculty - Why Does "Blackness" Matter?: The socio-historical context of racism in America. We’re hoping this course will offer faculty from diverse religious and secular perspectives a space to explore these important questions about race in America. We welcome you to invite faculty colleagues from your university or field to attend this course with you. This is a great opportunity to learn together each Thursday from Jan 28 - Feb 18.

All are welcome as we search together for shalom, examining racial justice from a Christian perspective through monthly readings and discussions.
