The General Commission on Religion and Race offers this seven-part curriculum as a first step in understanding what racism is, how it has and still shows up in the church and society, and how it impacts and impedes the integrity and effectiveness of God’s people gathered as the church. This resource is designed primarily for use by small groups—church school classes, campus ministries, clergy support groups, congregational leadership teams, and community-wide, faith-based groups—in spaces where most of the participants are white.

This is an entry-level curriculum for people who are unsure about what racism is and its relevance to individuals, church, and society; this is not a “train the trainer” course or one that confers “expert” status on leaders or participants. Rather, this resource is for Christian people who are ready to learn about how racism operates, how it affects Christian communities, and how people of faith can begin to recognize and address racism.
