‘Tales of a Brave Slave’: Creatively Reflecting on Racism and the Church
- Course Dates: Tue 23 February, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Fr. Azariah France-Williams is a Black British and his book Ghostship: Institutional Racism and the Church of England (SCM Press, 2020) has awoken empathy in white Christians through his use of prose and poetry as a means of reflecting on and illuminating a reality that is faced by people of colour in the UK as well as many black and minority ethnic clergy and lay leaders in the church.
This half-day session is centred around three poems used in Ghostship which provide an opportunity to engage with and learn from the experiences and stories of those who have struggled, to explore personal experience and meaning in the context of racism in the church, and to reflect creatively on your own responses to understandings of race, ethnicity, privilege, and power.
