The Kenosha Coalition for Dismantling Racism and Carthage College are co-sponsoring an online “Courageous Conversation” to explore racism in faith communities and how it affects attitudes and behavior.
“Moving Beyond Denial: Racism in Faith Communities” is scheduled to take place Thursday from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Panelists will address issues regarding their faith in light of current anti-racist and pro-equity concerns during the first hour. During the second hour, they will answer questions from the moderator and participants. Moderators will select audience questions from Zoom chat and Facebook comments.
The Reverend Jim Lynch of Lakeside Lutheran and Alex Whitaker will co-moderate the discussion.
Panelists and their faiths include:
Pastor Kara Baylor, College of Carthage, ELCA (Christianity)
Porch Bennett-Bey, Temple of Moorish Science of America (Islam)
Rev. Dr. Monica Cummings, Bradford Community Church (Unitarianism)
Jay English, from Journey Church Assembly of God (Christianity)
