Learning about Whiteness through a Black Man’s Story | JoAnn Borovicka

June 7 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Conversations of the Heart – Exploring Race Unity and Oneness

Author JoAnn Borovicka (a white woman) spent three years interviewing Richard Abercrombie (an African American man) as well as his family and friends in her collaboration with Richard on the writing of his recently published memoirs, Crossing the Line: A Memoir of Race, Religion and Change. In this interactive presentation, JoAnn will share what immersion in Richard’s story taught her about the culture of whiteness and the often surprising practical steps that white people can take to contribute to the solution of racial prejudice.

Conversations of the Heart is an online weekend workshop series in collaboration between the Bahá’í Publishing Trust and Green Acre.

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.

We would love to hear from you
