In the aftermath of the recent killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, Pastor Bill led A Conversation on Race via Zoom Meeting. A follow-up conversation will happen on Sunday, June 28, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. again by Zoom Meeting. Our discussion will focus on Robin DiAngelo’s well-received book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. We’ll also look ahead to participating in a planned March on Washington, DC on August 28, 2020.
