Sacred Ground Race Dialogue Informational Webinar
May 6 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Sacred Ground Race Dialogue Series Offers Informational Webinars

Individuals or groups interested in learning more about Sacred Ground: a film-based dialogue series on race and faith, are invited to an introductory webinar hosted by Katrina Browne, Sacred Ground curriculum developer, and producer/director of the acclaimed documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North.

Built around a curriculum of powerful documentary films, videos, and readings, Sacred Ground is a 10-part series that considers some of the major chapters of the United States of America’s history of race and racism. It focuses on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian American histories as they intersect with European American histories. It also invites participants to weave in the threads of personal and family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

In this webinar, Katrina Browne shares the “why and how” of the Sacred Ground series. She also walks participants through the online Sacred Ground curriculum and resources, including the password-protected pages, to provide participants with an overview of all the elements of this resource. There will also be time for questions.

This free one-hour webinar is offered at the following dates and times (registration required):

April 8 at 1:00 pm EST; Register Here
May 6 at 4:00 pm EST; Register Here
June 11 at 1:00 pm EST; Register Here

“More than a teaching tool, Sacred Ground calls us into intentional, sustained circles in which we can pray, watch, share our own stories, reflect, wonder, reckon, heal, and commit to action. Think of it as a pilgrimage in place,” notes the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers.

Click here to begin to explore the Sacred Ground webpages, and to sign up to receive additional resources. The press release for the series is here.

For questions, please contact Katrina Browne at consultantbbc@episcopalchurch.org.

Webinar support graciously provided by Episcopal Migration Ministries.

Recommended Readings
Race: Are We So Different? by Alan H. Goodman, Yolanda T. Moses and Joseph L. Jones

“Once in a while, but very rarely, a book comes along that clarifies and reorients a whole field of study. Race: Are We So Different? is such a book. Goodman, Moses, and Jones clearly and powerfully inform and enlighten the reader, not only about the latest scientific understandings of race, but also about why democracy and freedom depend on those understandings. This book is a triumph! Highly recommended for course adoption across the disciplines…” – Howard Winant, University of California, Santa Barbara

The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

“Ida Mae Brandon Gladney, a sharecropper’s wife, left Mississippi for Milwaukee in 1937, after her cousin was falsely accused of stealing a white man’s turkeys and was almost beaten to death. In 1945, George Swanson Starling, a citrus picker, fled Florida for Harlem after learning of the grove owners’ plans to give him a “necktie party” (a lynching). Robert Joseph Pershing Foster made his trek from Louisiana to California in 1953, embittered by “the absurdity that he was doing surgery for the United States Army and couldn’t operate in his own home town.” Anchored to these three stories is Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Wilkerson’s magnificent, extensively researched study of the “great migration,” the exodus of six million black Southerners out of the terror of Jim Crow to an “uncertain existence” in the North and Midwest. Wilkerson deftly incorporates sociological and historical studies into the novelistic narratives of Gladney, Starling, and Pershing settling in new lands, building anew, and often finding that they have not left racism behind. The drama, poignancy, and romance of a classic immigrant saga pervade this book, hold the reader in its grasp, and resonate long after the reading is done.” – Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

“I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language of Between the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading.” – Toni Morrison

Waking Up White by Debby Irving

“Waking up White is a brutally honest, unflinching exploration of race and personal identity, told with heart by a truly gifted storyteller. Much as Irving’s family sought to shield her from the contours of the nation’s racial drama, so too do far too many white Americans continue to do the same. For their sakes, and ours, let’s hope Irving’s words spark even more truth-telling. They certainly have the power to do so.” – Tim Wise, author, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son

Guest facilitators may require additional readings prior to their presentation of which you will be notified.
