A discussion on race

Posted: October 13, 2013 - 12:04am

Fourty-five people gathered on Sept.11 in the Fellowship Hall of the Northern Light United Church for a community-wide conversation about, and across, the racial divide in Juneau and the United States. Participants spoke openly about their hopes, fears, weariness and desire to try again to have conversations that matter, and to take action that will make a difference in promoting racial justice and minimizing the effects of racism. Small group discussion was prompted by “race cards,” an exercise developed by National Public Radio’s Michelle Norris. Race card instructions are to “think about your experiences, questions, hopes, dreams, laments or observations about race and identity. Then, distill them to just one sentence that has only six words” — more information can be found at theracecardproject.com.

The group will meet again on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the church. New participants are welcome. For more information, contact Phil Campbell at 586-3131 or nlucpastor@ak.net.
