Staying Connected

September 23, 2021

First Church's Racial Equity and Justice Group has begun a book reading and discussion series based on Eddie Glaude's book Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own. We will share the recordings of the weekly Zoom discussions here and on the Racial Equity and Justice Ministry page. For more information on the book, or if you would like to join the group please click on this page.

Week 1: Introduction, with excerpts from the James Baldwin documentary, “I am Nobody’s Negro,” and a reminiscence from Senator Fred Harris about the Kerner Commission.

Special Announcement!

After 18 months, this week we are ending our series of regularly scheduled Staying Connected posts. Although this series is coming to a close, we are working on some new video offerings to inspire, educate, and entertain you! We will continue to use this page to share occasional video content, or to direct you to our other online spaces, so be sure to check back soon!
