Rev. Sheila Sholes-Ross: The Big Talk–Part 2
The Big Talk–Part 2: The Experiences Connected to Community Blindness
Why does community pain (brutality, murders, disasters) force relevant race and humanity discussions, but not yield on-going relevant benefits? I want this part 2 talk to instill a discomfort within all of us.None of us should be allowed to become complacent and satisfied with the painfully slow, forward movement regarding race relations. Why? Because racism and oppression are on-going. There will always be crises if talks and strategies are not influx. Building on her BIG TALK presentation last season, Rev. Sholes-Ross will reflect on her recent visit to Baton Rouge, during the Alton Jones killing by police, and consider thoughts on what changes should be made so that history will not repeat itself. We live in a dangerous time. With no less than the sanctity of human relations teetering perilously in the balance. OUR balance. It’s up to us what we do next!
