For our beginning Conversation in Black and White, Chester and I made opening statements and we watched the movie SELMA as an icebreaker. And...an icebreaker it was. Here are some comments as a result of our first session:
"I had not seen the movie. It was certainly straight forward. Thanks for the initiative."
"It was a powerful movie. I haven't seen it before."
"Selma makes me think of Isaiah 5:23. Woe to those who acquit the guilty for a bribe and deprive the innocent of his right."
"I loved the time."
"We are glad we attended tonight. So glad that Charles was able to attend."
We look forward to our next session this Sunday at 6:00 PM. We will discuss our icebreaker and begin the conversation.
A friend sent me this article. It's worth the read:
Race relations was in the national news again this week as a twenty-two-year-old was fatally shot on March 19.
