Overshadowed by Hope - the Challenge of Racism in America
In January 2017, even as the nation is embarking on a new and uncertain political chapter, a four-week Trinity Forum series will commence that explores issues of race and racism. It is entitled “Overshadowed by Hope: The Challenge of Racism in America Today” and will
feature the following presentations:
January 15th. A showing and discussion of the 2015 PBS documentary “American In Black and Blue" moderated by Fr. Glenn Mahaffey.
January 22nd. “Sharing Our Stories,” a panel discussion by parishioners, including Beverly Dorsey, recounting their experiences of racism in their lives here in Binghamton.
February 5th. “Knowing Our History: Freedom and Race in America” by Anne Bailey, a professor of African American history at Binghamton University.
February 12th. “Mis-education and the Legacy of Race” by Brenda Brown, a community organizer, social worker and adjunct professor at Binghamton University
The Trinity Forum is part of our education and Christian formation program. It provides an opportunity to explore a wide variety of topics, covering biblical and faith questions, environmental questions, church history, social justice challenges, among many.
