Montgomery County’s Faith Community Working Group’s program, “Candid Conversations on Race” was based on facilitated book or film discussion groups meeting in the fall & winter of 2019.
Participants learned how our racialized society affects all people. Multiple book groups and a film discussion group, located throughout the county, based on books chosen to raise awareness of racism and white privilege met 4-5 times in the Fall & Winter.
