Racism without Racists
The Reverend Forrest Gilmore
Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, author of Racism without Racists, writes, "The more we assume that the problem of racism is limited to the Klan, the birthers, the tea party or to the Republican Party, the less we understand that racial domination is a collective process and we are all in this game." Moving past guilt into effectiveness, how do we see the subtlety of today's racism and confront it where it stands? 
The UU Adult Choir will share "Justice", by Paul Laurence Dunbar and Rollo Dilworth, as the Gift of Music.
