The Racial Justice Working Group at CtK invites you to join us for any of these events:
Film Forum February 7 @ 7pm on Zoom
All are welcome to view the film "Listen Please" on your own using this Youtube link. The film is about 18 minutes in length and features the voices of four octogenarian African-Americans from the Minnesota community, sharing their experiences and stories. Then join us on Zoom at 7pm 2/7/22 to discuss these stories. The Zoom meeting is informal, so feel free to drop in even just for part of the time, as your schedule permits. We will likely wrap up around 8 pm. Please note that the film contains brief instances of adult language.
Racial Reconciliation Seminar at Bethel University, February 15 @ 6:30 pm
Latasha Morrison, author of the New York Times Bestseller Be the Bridge, will deliver a 45-minute presentation entitled: “How Can We Realize Racial Reconciliation?" Following the presentation, she will participate in a 60-minute Q&A session. The event is being held in-person with social distancing (masks strongly recommended) in the Benson Great Hall on Bethel's campus. More information is available here.
Film Forum February 21 @ 7pm on Zoom
We will view the film "A Time for Burning" on our own using this Youtube link. This film tells the story of the minister of Augustana Lutheran Church in Omaha, Nebraska, as he attempts to persuade his all-white congregation to reach out to "negro" Lutherans in the city's north side. We will meet again on Zoom for a discussion of what we saw and heard in the film from 7-8 pm on 2/21/22. Once again, feel free to come for as much or as little of the discussion as you are able.
