Given by Dr. Robert P. Jones August 1, 2021
This is the first meeting of our multi-racial community of anti-racist activists. The book, White Too Long, speaks to the legacy of white supremacy and American Christianity. The three churches involved in this gathering are Pilgrim UCC, Walker Chapel AME Church of Oceanside, and St. John’s Church of Oceanside. We are committed to finding racial justice together. This book helps untangle the lies and half-truths associated with race. Many white churches have been silent about or resisting the changes occurring on this issue. We must really look at our history going back hundreds of years. Dr. Jones shares some interesting statistics related to people’s beliefs regarding issues today and how race and church affiliations influences them. America is at a crossroads concerning racial justice. There is a path forward. People working together in community is the solution.
