Unmasking Racism in Anti-Racism Education: Youth Ministry with Rev. Dr. Jia Starr Brown

Event time: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2024 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Event description: 

Zoom | September 18 - October 2 | 12 - 1:30 pm Eastern | 3 Sessions
Despite ongoing anti-racism efforts in our nation racism continues to flourish. If most Americans align with a faith or tradition that upholds values of justice and equity why are we still “here” in this static space? Join us for three sessions as we answer this question by journeying back to our roots: digging up the racism that is embedded in our existing anti-racism frameworks. Together we will explore decolonizing methods and inventory the historical seeds that continue to sprout as intended: to stunt our growth. 

Session 1 on September 18: 
We will explore the ways in which racism is embedded in the anti-racism frameworks consistently in use today particularly in many faith communities. Digging deep into its presence in youth ministry we will uncover how past perceptions actively impact future progress. 

Session 2 on September 25:
We will have a discussion surrounding overarching education frameworks that combat racism particularly in faith-based contexts. Together we will explore how these anti-racism scaffolding examples can be applied in youth ministry settings. 

Session 3 on October 2: 
We will investigate tangible tools resources and practices to guide participants as they strive to align their youth ministries with their hopeful anti-racism outcomes. Reviewing curation methods implementation of content and invitations to praxis our focus will be on the formation of a holistic ministry that considers all touchpoints for transformation. 

The three sessions will occur on September 18, 25, and October 2.
