Wednesday, November 20, 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Gould Room
Myths America Lives By: White Supremacy and the Stories That Give Us Meaning is full of deep concepts that beg for discussion. In our first meeting, we grappled with these "myths" from a largely historical and developmental perspective. But, for author Richard T. Hughes, a key defining aspect of these myths—why he designated them as such—is that they are still continuing to shape us.
In next Wednesday’s discussion, we will be wrestling with two questions. First, to what extent—and how—are these five myths and white supremacy affecting us now in our current, everyday lives? And, what concrete actions can we take to highlight and maximize these myths’ positive potential and negate and render void their negative potential? Our format this time will broaden the discussion, exploring opposing perspectives, each of which has widespread buy-in in different quarters of today’s environment.
This discussion promises to be meaningful and worthwhile for all who attend. Please join us regardless of whether you have read the book. Contact Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031, to RSVP or for more information.
