Adult Education is Returning to 9:00 a.m. on Saturday!
As BHCC returns to a combination of in-person and streaming worship services beginning this Sunday, March 28, at 9:30 a.m., it will once again be difficult to have an Adult Education Zoom program at 11:00 a.m. the same morning. Being mindful of potential conflicts, Adult Education Zoom programming is moving back to Saturday, March 27, 9:00-10:00 a.m. until we can meet in person once again.
This Saturday, Drs. Sarah and Phil Neusius will present a program entitled “Race Isn’t Real but Racism Is” which draws on their training in Anthropology. You’ve probably heard that race is a social construct, but what is the evidence that biological races do not really exist except in our minds? Our understanding of racism can be enhanced by realizing that skin color and other “racial” characteristics are actually minor parts of the way humans vary and that human beings do not easily sort into biological types. Instead, our concepts of race have developed in a social context with devastating consequences for the lived experience of people of color.
We are skipping a session on Saturday, April 3, due to Easter weekend, but Adult Education will return the following Saturday, April 10, 9:00 a.m.
Please join us this Saturday morning and for subsequent Saturday Adult Education sessions using the Zoom links that will be sent in future E-Blasts.
