1/20: View/Discuss TED Talk by Baratunde Thurston hosted by Unitarian Church of Sharon, MA (7:30 p.m)
“In honor of MLK Day, the Anti-Racism Working Group (ARWG) will be hosting this VIRTUAL event, which will consist of a viewing and follow-up discussion of a 17-minute Ted Talk by Baratunde Rafiq Thurston entitled How to Deconstruct Racism, One Headline at a Time. In the video, he explores the phenomenon of white Americans calling the police on Black Americans who have committed the crimes of … eating, walking or generally ‘living while Black’.” This video is both funny and deeply powerful and it provides an approach to help us move away from the violence of a white supremacist culture towards a culture of healing and non-violence. Registration is required. All registrants will receive a ZOOM LINK a few days before the event.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO RECEIVE ZOOM LINK: Registration Form
