Saint Anne Faithjustice Announces…
…the second program in a three-part series created by JustFaith
Ministries (Louisville, KY) that looks at faith and racial justice. This will
again be presented via Zoom. Participation in the first program is not
necessary to register for this program.
Faith & Racial Healing
Embracing Truth, Justice, and Restoration
This program primarily focuses on systemic racism toward enslaved Africans and their descendants. However, the experiences and histories of other groups absolutely require our study and response, and our decision regarding historical emphasis was certainly not the result of a grotesque contest over who has experienced the worst oppression. We chose to focus on the historical relationship between Black people and White people because:
- The concept of race emerged when enslaved Africans were brought to America and racial discrimination was subsequently codified into law. To understand the history of African-Americans is foundational to understanding racism in general.
- With everything we do, we want to do it to the best of our abilities. To gloss over the experiences of communities of color (other than African Americans) in the U.S. would be a great disrespect to those communities. Instead, we focus on African American history as a means of guiding participants in recognizing patterns of racial oppression that affect many marginalized groups.
- We are at a moment in history when attention is finally being given to Black/White issues. Faithjustice wants to help people of faith have these conversations within our community
Dr. King famously proclaimed that “whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought
to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”
