Little Lights is once again hosting a Race Literacy 101 class this spring starting March 4th, 2020.
This is a 11 session study and discussion group that will meet together weekly to learn and discuss authentically and thoughtfully on the issue of race and racism in an honest yet grace-filled environment. The class includes education on the history of the ideology of race, some scripture study, and times for discussion and dialogue. There will be times of personal sharing, interactive activities, and classroom style learning.
We will be viewing Race: Power of an Illusion video series (PBS), as well as other materials to learn more about the history and the “science” of race to better educate attendees on what this thing called "race" actually is. The class also seeks to be part of the solution in not only educating people on the issue, but also bringing hope to an issue that has caused so much pain, tension, and division.
There are usually two guest speakers for the course and there is also an informal dinner after the conclusion of the class.
The cost of the class is $30. However, we do not want anyone to not sign up for the class because of financial hardship. If you are in need of a scholarship or if you have any questions, please contact Steve Park at email@example.com.
If you think you will miss more than 2 classes, it is recommended to take the class during a different cycle.
Dates of the classes, each from 7pm to 9pm:
