Wrestling with Racism
Rev. Rick and Dr. Elizabeth invite you to watch the documentary True Justice. Those who have read Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy - or watched the movie of the same name - will gain deeper understanding of the Equal Justice Initiative and Bryan's work in bringing to life the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama.
The documentary is available on HBO. For those who do not subscribe to this service, you can access a free trial of HBO Max. If you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can also access the HBO trial through them.
Watch this introduction to “Systemic Racism” from act.tv:
Elizabeth Baker, Margaret Battat, Josephine McNeil, Rebekah Mitsein, Pete November, and Marge O'Reilly volunteered at the June 7th annual meeting to take part in a conversation on racial justice matters in Newton. Out of this Conversation, we have produced this document for the congregation's consideration.
What book, articles and podcasts have you been reading/listening to this summer that have helped you become more anti-racist? Please let drelizabeth@eliotchurch. org know! Watch this space for information on how we can share our perspectives with each other!
