 “Love overcomes both hate and fear. However, love does not overcome hate and fear through controversy, argument, or force, but by subtle power of transformation, transmutation, and sublimation, it is invisible in its essence but apparent through its act. As light overcomes darkness, as the presence of heat causes the coolness of a room to change, until it is warm and comfortable, so the radiant action of love and peace dissipates fear, hate, and confusion. Love is the victor in every case. Love breaks down the iron bars of thought, shatters the walls of material belief, severs the chain of bondage which thought has imposed and sets the captive free.” - Ernest Holmes in Effective Prayer, pp 51-53 
It’s time to understand, stand for, and learn about ways to act for racial equity from someone who has lived it! Cracking the Shell on Race-ism is an interactive workshop series for people who do not identify as Black to assist in gaining additional information, insight, and a spiritual response to the history and impact of slavery for both Whites and African Americans.  
For many who do not identify as Black, the current unrest regarding racial inequities seems sudden and alarming. Within a safe, inclusive environment, this workshop series will help participants understand and answer the questions: How did we get here? What do we do now that we are here?
