The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together by Heather McGhee

Led by Father Umphlett, this book group will read The Sum of Us, a new book highlighting the price all people have paid for the perpetuation of racist ideas and practices. Though the book is a secular work, we will consider its connections to the Biblical imperative to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are all connected at the atomic level.  Why then do we participate in systems that not only harm others, but harm ourselves as well? Are we really loving ourselves if we aren’t loving our neighbors?

Tuesdays, October 5 through December 7, 6:30-8 p.m., Broome Hall
