White Picket Fences Book Study
As we begin to work toward understanding the issues of race and white privilege, we are starting with reading groups focused on the book White Picket Fences by Amy Julia Becker.
We had two webinars with the author on Tuesday, July 28, 7:30-9:00 PM to introduce the book and another follow up webinar on Monday, August 17, 7:30-9:00 PM. Both webinars were recorded.
The webinars were sponsored by the Justice and Diversity Ministry of our church.
White Picket Fences Webinar #1 - recorded July 28

Amazon describes the book as: "Gently addressing the challenging topics of privilege and race, power and inequality, White Picket Fences is a memoir of Amy Julia Becker's growing awareness of the unequal benefits (and secret harm) she received by virtue of her white skin, Protestant heritage, education and able body."
