Becoming friends with persons of different races is an effective way of working to overcome racism. How can we encourage more of this to happen? We know that Americans, both white and persons of color, often struggle to have meaningful, mutual, and transformative conversations about racial issues. Why is this?
To try to answer these questions, Racial Taboo explores our history, using candid interviews and comedy to help us to gain a common understanding of our past and how it affects our present. Racial Taboo is a catalyst of a film, inspiring open, respectful, and ongoing conversations between people of different races.
Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church in partnership with Saint Luke AME Zion Church will host this viewing and discussion of Racial Taboo in Wesley Memorial UMC’s Activity Building on May 9th. Folks from other United Methodist and AMEZ churches are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
DATE: Wed, May 9th, 2018
TIME: 5:30 PM covered dish/potluck meal (please bring your favorite dish from around the world); film begins at 6:00 PM
PLACE: Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church (1401 S. College Rd, Wilmington, NC – Activity Building)
