Racism, Privilege and Denial: Healing White America’s Blindspots

January 30 | Tim Wise Returns to All Saints

Is being well intentioned and sympathetic enough to dismantle institutional and structural racism? What does it mean to show up against racism?

“The irony of American history
is the tendency of good white Americans
to presume racial innocence.
Ignorance of how we are shaped racially
is the first sign of privilege.
In other words:
It is a privilege
to ignore the consequences of race in America.”
― Tim Wise

Thinking and acting in new ways that radically change our assumptions and cultural training is a process that requires both resources and all people showing up at the table.

To guide us in that work on our journey, we are delighted to welcome back to All Saints Church prominent author and educator Tim Wise for a very special half-day workshop on Saturday, January 30 from 9:00 a.m. til 1:00 p.m.

Wise’s social justice focus on race, class, gender, privilege and sexuality has inspired several books, including his highly acclaimed memoir “White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.” He joins us to equip and facilitate our community dialogue about how the idea of how whiteness continues to segregate, marginalize and hurt the human family, along with strategies for recognizing, understanding and combating racism as it shows up in our lives.

Do not miss this opportunity for education, inspiration and relationship building as we work together to develop skills for the critically important and ongoing work of dismantling all forms of racism.

Register online here  until 1pm Friday, January 29th. Walk up registration will be available on the day of the event.
– $20 registration fee.
