Examining Privilege with Rev. Dr. Alice Hunt

Rescheduled from January!

"Examining White Privilege" June 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Florida Church House, 9300 University Blvd., Orlando, FL 32817.

Rev. Dr. Alice Hunt is Executive Director of the American Academy of Religion.  Her research interests include biblical interpretation and engagement in the public square, historiography and the Bible, and leadership development. She says this about the CTS White Privilege Glasses Project, begun while she was president of Chicago Theological Seminary: "Racism is the pre-eminent social justice issue of our time. The purpose of this spot is to challenge people to see the oppressive ubiquity of racism in our world — and inspire dialogue."

Hunt added that "while the project isn't focused on audiences of color but on white people instead," the school wants to share the video widely. To that end, it is supplementing the video with additional resources. The seminary has discussion guides and other materials available for schools, churches and organizations that wish to have their own discussions on racial privilege.

Admission to this workshop is free, and lunch will be provided. Costs related to this event will be underwritten by the Wilson Fund, a fund of the Florida Conference. Authorized ministers with standing in the Florida Conference may count this as one unit of Professional Ethics Training. Please register by June 4.
