Location: The Riverside Church in the City of New York

Facilitator: Rev. J.C. Austin, Vice President, Christian Leadership Formation, Auburn Seminary

White people in the United States often struggle to engage the dynamics of race in our culture, and particularly the unique identity and privileges that white people hold in society. This class will create a positive and brave space in which to unpack why this is such a struggle; provide resources for overcoming that challenge and engaging the realities of white racial identity and privilege in America; and consider how Christianity can and must play a positive role in this work.
