Exploring Race and Racial Justice
A course co-led by the Rev. Dominique Atchison and Briallen Hopper, PhD. This workshop will explore the notions of race, racism and racial justice on a personal, interpersonal, cultural and institutional level. We will engage a range of tools including movies and video clips, discussion, personal storytelling, short readings and breakout sessions with the goal of expanding our understanding of race and deepening our commitments to racial justice at Broadway, in the United Church of Christ, and beyond.
