Join the Shir Tikvah Racial Justice Task Force for the launch of its Racial Justice Video and Book Club. We’ll start by viewing and discussing Race: Power of an Illusion, a series of three hour-long videos developed by California Newsreel, which examine the origin of the concept of race, the “scientific” claims made about race in the 19th and 20th centuries, and the consequences of the race-based ideology in the present. The videos and conversation are designed to help you to improve your ability to talk about the concept of race and its consequences.

Tuesday, Feb. 25, Tuesday, March 3, & Tuesday March, 17. 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Party room at 4820 Park Commons Drive, St. Louis Park.

We encourage you to attend all three FREE sessions, but you are welcome to come if you can only make one or two. See below for a brief description of each session.

Episode 1- The Difference Between Us
Feb. 25
This episode examines the contemporary science--including genetics--that challenges our common sense assumptions that human beings can be bundled into three or four fundamentally different groups according to their physical traits.
Episode 2- The Story We Tell
March 3
Learn about the roots of the race concept in North America, the 19th century science that legitimated it, and how it came to be held so fiercely in the western imagination. The episode is an eye-opening tale of how the concept of race served to rationalize, even justify, American social inequalities as "natural."
Episode 3- The House We Live In
March 17
This episode uncovers how race resides not in nature but in politics, economics and culture. It reveals how our social institutions "make" race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status and wealth to white people, with a particular focus on the housing market. We will devote significant discussion time to what we can do as individuals and as a religious community to combat racism.
