Martin Luther King. Jr. Day - January 18, 2021

THE LONG SHADOW: Film Screening and Discussion

January 17-23

 

This weekend, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Racial Justice Task Force is proud to co-sponsor this event, hosted by the Racial Justice Task Force of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton, Not in Our Town Princeton, and La Convivencia: 

 

The Long Shadow is a PBS documentary about Director Frances Causey's personal experience of white privilege in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the US. She exposes her own family's history of slaveholding and looks at how slavery continues to have an impact today. 

 

During the week of Martin Luther King Day, you may access the documentary at this link between January 17-23 at any time convenient to you, and at no cost.

You may also register to join a Q&A with Director Frances Causey on January 20 at 7:30 pm.

The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 6 pm

Authors Richard Rothstein and Lila Corwin Berman discuss contemporary racial segregation across the United States. Panelists will dig into the history of public housing projects, suburbanization, and the actions of the federal housing administration and then interrogate the racial segregation and income gap in America today as a byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state and federal levels.

Congregation Beth Chaim is committed to becoming an explicitly antiracist organization, treating every day as an opportunity to live our values on racial justice through reflection, education, and action. 


Beth Chaim has convened a Racial Justice Task Force to coordinate its efforts to be an antiracist institution and foster deeper understanding around issues of race and racial equity.
