An Invitation to Share Your Stories of Living with Racism

Stories are an important way that communities make meaning of the world in which we live. Whether they are biblical stories, fairy tales, children’s stories, classic literature, murder mysteries, romance novels or histories; they help us figure out who we are, why we are, why we behave as we do, and what our purpose is. We each carry our own story within us, and sometimes we share a chapter here and there with others. When we do, we build connections or bridges. We don’t always understand each other’s stories, but in the telling we begin to recognize the humanity we share with one another – we develop empathy and compassion for one another and even begin to love one another.
