Exploring White Privilege Curriculum

Some folks at CUCC have expressed an interest in participating in a study using the UCC's new White Privilege:  Let's Talk curriculum.  A small exploratory group will be meeting to consider how/whether to offer a fuller study to the congregation.  If you would like to be part of that exploratory group, contact Śānti Matthews as soon as possible.  education.cucc@gmail.com

From Śānti:  We will meet on Tuesday evenings in the Hoffmann Room from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for six weeks, beginning January 17. At the conclusion of this group, we will discuss whether and how to bring this curriculum to the larger church.

Here is the plan until or unless we decide to change it...
Week 1: Part One
Week 2: Part Two
Week 3: Part Three
[Skip Feb. 7]
Week 4: Part Four
Week 5: Where do we go from here?
Week 6: Preparing next steps.

Update from Śānti:  We will meet again tomorrow evening in the Hoffmann Room.  This is week 2, so tomorrow we will focus on the five chapters in Part 2 of White Privilege: Let's Talk.

We will skip our meeting on February 7 due to the screening of Democracy For Sale in our sanctuary.

Each week we are exploring and sharing our responses to one of the Parts of the curriculum. On our final and sixth session together on February 28, we will discuss whether and how to bring this curriculum to the larger church.
