“Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race”
The Faith Formation Center is hosting an all church book study during Lent of the book “Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race”.
In the book, Debby Irving, author, tells how she stumbled into troubling and even shocking revelations about racial inequities after what she describes as “a blissfully sheltered, upper-middle-class suburban childhood.”
Irving believed herself to be a good person and even tried to use her career to help people of color. But the book describes her gradual discovery of her own “white privilege,” which led to the realization that good intentions alone cannot overcome centuries of racial injustice. It’s a story likely to resonate with Presbyterians.
