Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness with Austin Channing Brown

  • St. Mary's Episcopal Church 521 W 126th St New York, NY (map)

New York, NY

In a time when nearly all institutions claim to value "diversity" in their mission statements, Austin Channing Brown offers a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. She writes in riveting detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Her stories bear witness to the complexity of America's social fabric -- from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations.

Join Austin Channing Brown as she discusses her book and invites us to confront apathy, recognize God's ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness -- if we let it -- can save us all.

Doors open at 6:00pm. Program begins at 6:30pm, followed by a reception and book signing. Copies of Brown’s I’m Still Here will be available for purchase.
