Students will explore how white people can and must move through denial, guilt, shame and fear so they can take action with greater anti-racist awareness and courage, humility and compassion to participate in movements led by people of color. Utilizing theological and biblical resources, students will learn to help build “beloved communities” and sustain this anti-racist journey. [3 credit hours.]
