Anti-Racism Resources


Anti-Racism Resources

Together we must resolve to make no peace with oppression. We must resolve to make no peace injustice, hatred, or racism. Together let us resolve to be the story keepers and storytellers of those lost so that their lives were not in vain. Together let us join hands across difference and divide, across race and class, to stand as beloved children of a Loving God. …”

Anti-Racism Resources and Immediate Actions

From January 31 Sacred Conversations with guest speaker Dr. Terry Jones

A note from Dr. Jones on resources: “Based on brevity (under 125 pages), availability (on the Internet), and readability, I would select the Health Equity Network’s Segregation in St. Louis and Richard Rothstein’s The Making of Ferguson.”

During his talk, Dr. Jones also recommended Troubling the Waters by Jerome Morris, which focuses on education.
