Fifth Avenue’s Courageous Conversations

Are you still asking the questions around racial injustices that were being asked this past summer? Although it is no longer the top headline story, we still believe that these conversations are important.

The church’s Anti-Racism Response Team has curated a 4-session curriculum around race and storytelling called Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church’s Courageous Conversations.

These conversations will invite us to listen to people’s stories and asks ourselves questions about our understanding of race and racism. For instance, at what age were you aware of race? What institutions taught you about racism, and what did they teach you?

We hope that your community group will join us for these conversations. If you do not have a community group or would like to join a pop-community group for these discussions starting the week of January 17, contact us at [email protected].

Tell us a story.

As we go deeper into exploring the issue of race, we hope you will watch and listen to these Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church Courageous Conversations from some of our church members.
