Racial Justice in the Church is intended for educational purposes. All views expressed in Racial Justice in the Church are designed to reflect a place for the critical and civil exchange of ideas. Some of the course material (words, images, video, concepts, and reading suggestions) will include topics that students may find offensive and/or traumatizing. The goal of sharing these potentially offensive materials is not to have black people and other people of color unnecessarily rehearse their traumas or create shame in anyone. We are asking all who watch to help us create an atmosphere of mutual respect and sensitivity.
