Update your understanding: The History of racism in america

Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 PM
In-person Only in the Chapel

Join the Glenview Community Church Faith in Action Team as we welcome Bill Horine, retired educator, and avid American history buff, for the beginning of a two-part series on teaching the history of racism in America. Bill will highlight the omissions or distortions in the teaching of American History as it relates to Black Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanic peoples. Bill will also discuss how an incomplete understanding of history has impacted current thinking and events.

Please also mark your calendars for a shorter follow-up presentation and an opportunity for discussion about Critical Race Theory, its basic concepts, how it was originally used, and how it has impacted the current debate over teaching history in schools. This program is Wednesday, November 16 from 7-8:15 p.m.

Both presentations are free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information contact call the church office.
