New Anti-Racism Resources in Diocesan Library

Some thought-provoking new titles have been added to our diocesan anti-racism resources. They help us identify the subtle and not-so-subtle elements of white privilege and power in our own backgrounds and communities.

Episcopalians and Race, by Gardiner H. Shattuck, Jr.
A sobering historical review (1864-1970) of the Church’s efforts to address discrimination and racism

Understanding and Dismantling Racism, by Joseph Barndt
How systemic racism undermines our intentions of good will, and what we can do about itA House of Prayer for All Peoples, by Sheryl Kujawa-Holbrook
The stories of some local congregations that are building multi-racial unity

Race: The Power of an Illusion (from a PBS series, DVD)
What Makes Me White? (DVD on the creation of “white” identity)
Free Indeed (DVD on the role of whites in supporting or opposing racism)

These will be available to congregations or individuals whenever they are not needed by the training teams. For more information, contact Darcy James, djames@camasnet.com or 208-983-9334
