How to Fight Racism Study Guide
Take the next step to confronting racism in relationships and in everyday life.
This 10-session, video-based study guide (DVD/video streaming sold separately) provides groups and individuals with practical tools and suggestions, actionable items, and real-world examples of change, to enable you to become proactive and effective in the fight for racial justice.
In his bestselling book, How to Fight Racism, Jemar Tisby urged readers to move beyond talking about racism and start equipping ourselves to fight against it. This study guide is the next step on that journey for small groups, churches, classes, and individuals.
Tisby unpacks his "A.R.C." model for racial justice, developing each of its stages in practical and empowering ways:
- Awareness (sessions 2—4) focuses on racial history, identity, and the image of God.
- Relationships (sessions 5—7) presents effective ways to do reconciliation, make friends, and build diverse communities.
- Commitment (sessions 8—10) concentrates on how to work for racial justice in your life, community, and country.
You'll be encouraged to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines.
The study guide—along with the video study—offers participants the opportunity to be part of the solution to racial problems and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world.
