Starter Resources on Race for White Evangelicals
by Megan Lietz
Our Experience and Identity as White People
In order to engage effectively as white people in issues of race we need to understand how our experiences and perspectives may be different from those of people of color. An important part of this is understanding the racial privilege we have as white people because of the color of our skin. For some perspective, check out the following resources.
Engaging Issues of Race
As we explore our identity as white people, we need to consider how this shapes our role in engaging issues of race and develop a toolkit for effective action.
Would you like to join me for a group conversation for White evangelicals about race?
Are you interested in moving ahead, but don’t see a resource that meets your particular need or area of interest? Feel free to contact me and I will do my best to refer you to tools that will be helpful on your journey.
In addition, please keep an eye out for monthly blog posts that will continue our conversation.
Until we meet again…
