Building a more unified and inclusive
Homewood - Flossmoor community
The Community Conversations series aims to bring together a diverse group of Homewood and Flossmoor residents to build on our existing diversity and become a more unified and inclusive community. The discussion group will increase cultural competency, advance racial equity, broaden diverse friendship networks, and foster community action.
The first three-part discussion will be co-facilitated by Flossmoor residents Matt Epperson and Stephanie Poole-Byrd , and will focus on the NPR series "Seeing White" https://www.sceneonradio.org/seeing-white/
The podcast series focuses on racial inequities by asking: Where did the notion of "whiteness" come from? What does it mean? What is whiteness for and how does it operate to uphold racism?
The discussion will occur via ZOOM at the following dates/times:

Book Discussions on Zoom
Wednesdays October 14 - November 18 @ 7pm via Zoom
Our Wednesday evening course for October and November will be study and discussion of this 2015 book by the Rev. Canon Kelly Brown Douglas. The book explores the social and historical frameworks that have developed a stand-your-ground culture in United States. As a theologian and a Black mother responding to the killing of Trayvon Martin, Douglas argues that ideas of American exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny have been harmful to Black Americans, especially because stand-your-ground culture receives a stamp of approval by mainstream religious groups. Douglas highlights how the Black faith tradition provides purpose and hope for seeking God during a time of crisis.
