Course Details

This online course aims to support Quakers in reading important books on racism. After reading each chapter or section of the chosen book, you will be invited to share your reflections and questions on a private discussion forum. Through this process of reading and relating the material to your own experience, you will gain a deeper understanding of racism and the systems that maintain white supremacy, leading to meaningful action and ally-ship. You will be supported in your reflection by the course leaders.

The book we will read together for this course is ‘Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging’ by Afua Hirsch. You will need to borrow or purchase a copy in order to take part in the course.

Some informal live drop-in sessions have now been added for this course on Wednesdays at 19:00-20:30 (UK time) beginning on 23 September however it is not essential to participate in any of these sessions.
